Built 1685 after the second major Bradninch fire, and considerably altered and enlarged in the C19 and again in the 1920s. Cob and stone, plastered, under dry-slate roof. Formerly a 3-room, cross-passage plan, no. 18 occupying the inner room, and No.20 the others, with the lower-end to the right. 2 storey. Front: 3 window range, tripartite horned sash windows to both floors; with one pane per sash; both house entrances under moulded canopies on console brackets. End stacks, and one axial stack. The house has been considerably enlarged at the back, notably in the mid-1920s in the form of 2 wings, each with two 1-light horned sash windows; and there is a late-C19 glazed, timber workshop, formerly detached. Interior: C17 features survive in the left-hand room of no. 20 (formerly the Hall) - one cross beam with run-out stop with bar - and the ground floor room of No.18 - one axial beam with run-out stops. The Hall fireplace has been blocked: it was formerly adorned with plaster panels, one bearing the letters CR: the house was rebuilt after the fire of winter 1684-5, and as Charles II died in February 1685, it must date from those winter months.
