INTERIOR: No.41: a high weathered plinth on the inner side of the north gable wall and good studding above with a 4-light diamond mullioned window to the upper storey. The original rear wall has been removed on the ground storey and no evidence for studding remains. The frame and the roof are both in 3 bays; roof with clasped purlins and straight collars, rafters covered. The main tie-beams are very heavy, chamfered but rough. The internal chimney-stack between the 2 houses has the brickwork completely covered. No.43 also has 3 bays to the frame and roof and a similar roof structure. Heavy main beams on the ground storey have been hacked back or boxed. On the 1st storey the main posts, wallplates and tie-beams are exposed.
