Two houses, now 3. Late C17/early C18. MATERIALS: limestone rubble with Ham Hill stone buttresses, stepped stone coping and brick stacks to ends and party wall. Plain tile roof with 3 lower courses of stone slates. PLAN: each original house was of 2-unit plan; No.62, to the right has a later rear wing to the left. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; each original house of symmetrical 3-window range. All openings have wooden lintels and all windows are 3-light casements with 2 panes to each light. The central original doors are planked and studded with wrought-iron strap hinges inside. No.66 has a C20 door inserted to the left of that to No.64. INTERIOR: The ground floor to No.62 is stone flagged, it has a cross beam in both rooms resting on the window lintels; these are square toward the front and chamfered to the rear with long run-out stops. The room to the right has a deep chimney breast with a C20 fireplace, and evidence of a staircase to its left. The C19 rear wing, cut into rising ground, has two wide, low segmental arches which were storage for barrels in the C19, when it was a public house. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: spearhead forecourt railings on a rubblestone revetment wall have plain gate piers to sides and centre; high rubblestone walls enclose the gardens to the sides and rear and attach to the rear wing; to the right corner of No.62 is a stable block with a morticed beam to a former upper floor and a former door to first-floor rear. Painted onto the right-hand buttress can be seen "Good stabling and well aired beds". This was the Volunteer Inn.
