GV II



House and shops, early C16. Four bays surviving from a row of early C16 shops with jettied first floor halls above. The timber framing is visible externally in the right hand gable end and shows the close studding. The front wall is cased in brick and the jetty is underbuilt also in brick. Steeply pitched roof now covered with asbestos tiles. Two storeys. The fenestration and doorways are all C20. Interior. In four bays and a narrower bay, probably for a passage. The floor framing has early C16 double cyma moulding to all the main beams, except for those to the passageway which are unmoulded. At first floor, the posts have jowled heads, and upward bracing to the tie beams which are chamfered and stopped. The first floor was originally open to the roof. The posts have thickened heads and upward bracing to the tie beams which are chamfered and stopped. There is no evidence of any of the trusses being closed, except for the mortices in the tie beams to the narrow through-passage bay. The roof is of tenoned side purlin construction with the purlins in line. There are pairs of curved wind braces from the principal rafters to the purlin. The principal rafters are joined by collars and are halved and pegged at the apex. There is no evidence of smoke blackening. The halls were probably heated by side stacks which have since been removed.
