House, now part of shopping arcade. Early C17. Timber-frame with plaster; stone party walls corbelled out to first-floor jetty; zig-zag pantile roof. Single-depth range parallel to street. 2 storeys; 3-window range. The timber is carved, mostly restored. Three 6-light scratch-moulded mullioned and transomed first-floor windows. Enriched early C17 carving with vine-leaf, patera, grapes etc to bressumer and eaves fascia; other timbers are similar but mostly late C19. INTERIOR: now a C20 shopping mall with a left-of-centre entrance and no visible features of interest. History: a photograph of 1865 shows the ground floor to be coursed limestone rubble with sash windows to the left and a 5-light stone-mullioned window in a canted bay to the right of the original door position. The original house is said to be the one that Judge Jeffries lodged in during the trials at the " Bloody Assize". (Squibbs PJ: Squibbs' History of Bridgwater: Chichester: 1988-: 48).
