Timber framed building of medieval origin now 2 houses. Stone plinth, square panel framing with some angle braces. Infilling mainly of brick but some wattle and daub panels remain. The framing is of different heights suggesting that the lower left hand side of the building may be older. The timber framing appears to be interrupted near the centre of the facade where a brick wall extends to roof level, possibly replacing a former cross wing. Thatched roof to varying eaves height. Chimneys above 2nd and 4th bay division. 1
