Elizabethan House Museum, 32, New Street - Plymouth, City of (UA)

Early C17 three-storey timber frame and jettied merchant's house with rubble side wall and evidence of former adjoining house, restored in 1926 by AS Parker. Interior has many original features and it is probably the most complete and unaltered example of a jettied merchant's house in Plymouth. Historic England has funded investigation into causes of structural weakness and water ingress and repair work is expected to be underway in 2018-19.
