WOOLPIT THE STREET (SOUTH WEST TL 9762 SIDE) 5/166 No.1 (formerly listed - as Premises on North corner 15.11.54 of Rag's Lane) GV II House, C16 in two stages with mid C19 remodelling. 2 storeys. 3 windows (including central dummy) to The Street; a rear range of 3 windows fronts onto Rags Lane. Timber-framed; the front elevation is encased in C19 gault brick.

The gable to Rags Lane and the rear wing are both plastered, the latter with exposed close-studding. The ground storey wall has been pushed forwards to give a flush facade, but the exposed joist-ends show that the wing was long- wall jettied. Slated roof, probably once plaintiled. A group of 3 axial late C16 or early C17 detached diagonally-set square chimneys. Mid C19 windows with flat arches of gauged brick and small-pane sashes; to left is a flat- roofed bay with twin sashes. The front range was built with a jetty at 1st floor on 2 consecutive sides, of which a dragon beam remains as evidence.

Clasped purlin roof.
