GV II

House, later houses and tenements, now offices. Early C17 reconstruction on an existing plot. Mid C18 facade. Brick. Plain tiled roof. Plan is of a front range with a central passage to rear, opening into a very narrow yard which separates 2 parallel ranges running west, a form which invites a split into 2 independent properties. Converted 1989-91 to offices. Masculine facade of 3 storeys in 5 bays with rusticated stone quoins and stone surrounds to the late C18 sashes with glazing bars. Central fielded and panelled door. Door surround of big rusticated blocks with an arch over the fanlight and a metope frieze beneath the hood. Parapet hides roof. One stack right and left. South gable wall rebuilt in yellow commons after collapsing c1900. C20 South rear wing in C17 brick runs down Ferry Lane: one 3-light C17 mullioned casement to ground floor; occasional C18 sashes with glazing bars. Rear wings of 2 storeys terminating in very rare, for Lynn, stepped gables. North wing is wider, accommodating two 1989 sashes to each floor and another in the gable. South wing only has one sash to each principal floor. Late C18 sashes here and there to courtyard elevations. 3 gabled dormers to north wing, on south roof slope. One ridge stack to each wing, that to the south of C17. INTERIOR. One ovolo-moulded 2-light timber casement survives to first floor of south rear wing. Rear ground-floor west room to north range with a sunk quadrant bridging beam. Occasional deeply moulded internal door surrounds. Roof of north wing has upper clasped purlins and cambered collars, the south wing roof is much altered. Front range appears to have a standard principal, common and purlin roof.
