Formerly known as: Foresters Public House CHURCH STREET. House, formerly public house, mid to late C16. Timber-framed and rendered with gabled clay plain tile roof. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attics and long wall jetty to frontage. Street elevation has one wide, shallow, double-hung sash window with small panes and one 2-light casement with small panes and moulded surround, on first floor. Ground floor has a 3-light C19 window with short flanking pilasters, a C19 door with 2 arch-headed panes (moved from elsewhere) and a double-hung sash with small panes and moulded surround. Off-centre ridgeline stack and one small gabled dormer with 2-light casement window. To the rear is a part 2-storey and part single-storey extension, retained from former public house use. 4 bays of timber-framing, largely elm, the southern bays forming large chamber on ground and first floors with flat chamfered and stopped spine and bridging joists. Central wall posts are jowlless and without tiebeam and southern end of structure has been truncated. Narrow stack bay with jowled posts and open truss on north-western flank. Narrow northern bay was presumably a service room on ground floor. Roof contains one poorly-shaped crown post and side purlins with suggestions of wind bracing. (Hybrid roof?). INTERIOR: corner cupboard in main ground floor room of C18 with half-domed interior, Tuscan pilasters, serpentine shelves, from elsewhere in Harwich. Brick-vaulted cellar in rear extension as 'rain back'. (RCHME: Essex North East: London: 1922-: 135, ITEM 11).
