Three framed bays aligned east/west, with an added brick bay to east; gable end stacks and a lateral stack on front wall. Two storeys, four windows: 2-light casements, with lateral stack between two to left; ground floor: to left-hand side: a boxed 6-pane sash with entrance to right which has a ledged and boarded door; to right-hand side a tiled pentice roof over two square bay windows with entrance between which has a wooden architrave and a half-glazed door; to right hand corner a garage with two-leaf door; to left-hand end the late C18 brick addition which is of,one storey with a dentilled brick cornice and a 2-light casement. Framing: originally two rectangular panels high; gable truss (to left) has two raking struts to collar and a clasped purlin. This building is traditionally said to be the original Bewdley Town Hall, but the structural evidence suggests it was an ordinary late medieval house. (VCH 4, p 304).
