- II

Almshouses, C16 or C17 with major alterations of 1836 as described on tablet over entrance. Timber-framed, encased at the front and left-hand gable in gault brick; plastered at the rear. Slated roof; bargeboards with undulating soffits. An axial chimney of 1836, gault brick with 4 flues, of quatrefoil plan. 2 storeys, 5 windows. Sash windows with six panes, the upper three having arcaded heads; above each window is a prominent hood-mould of painted brick. A set-forward central bay has a 4-centred arched entrance doorway, the door recessed with sunk vertical panels. In the entrance hall are a pair of carved oak figures, one on either side of the doorway. They are in the C15 manner and of high quality. Said to have been part of the original front elevation, but perhaps more likely to be of ecclesiastical origin.
