House forming part of a row that was possibly all of one late medieval build and which includes Nos. 2 - 12. C15 or earlier, but reconstructed in the C19 after a fire. Stone rubble. Thatched roof. PLAN: Possibly retaining something of the Medieval plan; now a 2-room plan with a central through-passage, each room heated from a fireplace in a lateral stack at the back and with an outshut behind the left-hand room. EXTERIOR: 2-storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-bay front, entirely reconstucted in C19; C20 3-light casements with horizontal glazing bars and C20 panelled and glazed door at centre. At rear the thatch of the main roof is carried down over stone outshut on right; to left an insubstantial C20 outshut with a corrugated sheet iron lean-to roof. INTERIOR: The left room has a stone rubble fireplace with a re-used moulded timber bressumer and a C19 boxed-in fireplace to the right with a simple balustrade on the landing at the top. The right-hand room has a small fireplace with a stop-chamfered timber bressumer. Ceilings removed, exposing joists. C19 4-bay king-post roof structure.
