2. Dated 1652. Despite older and altered appearance this date is probably correct. Rubble with large quoins. Slate roof with weathered coping to left. Stone chimneys, one diagonal, with moulded caps and weathering. Two and a half storeys with parapet. Moulded plinth, and strings over ground and first floors. Three inconspicuous modern dormers. One+three bays, the 3 right hand bays symmetrical with outer angled bays of 6 light mullion and transom windows. Crenellated parapet to bays probably a later alteration. Central transomed first floor window over modern ledged door. Left hand bay altered with Tudor arched and moulded doorway with high stop chamfers - now with modern brick filler - and 4-light window first floor under lintel, thought possibly to replace an oriel. Small inserted window between left hand angled bay and left hand doorway. Two date panels in parapet. Central one moulded, the right hand one inscribed H.B. 1652. This house has recently been restored - left hand bay rebuilt, right hand bay transoms replaced. To rear: a 4 centred entrance in line from similar door to street. Three storey 'L' plan extension with mullion windows and relieving arches over drip labels. Interior: a number of mid C17 Tudor arch fireplaces. Stairs removed from position to north of central fireplace, also indications of a former stair turret in angle with extensions. Very wide through passage.
