GV II*

House in row, formerly two or three. Late C15 or early C16. Heavy tension-braced large-panel timber-framing, painted brick nogging; tile roof and brick stack. A long jettied front to parallel-plan range with steep-pitched roof; small lower brick wing to centre, back. 2 storeys and attic, 3-windowed. 2 wide-spaced small gabled 2-light dormers above 2:3:2-light late C18 or C19 casements with horizontal bars at first floor. At ground floor are three 2-light casements with transoms. Far left is a plank door, and near right end another, under a 4-centre-headed arched overlight; the head cut from a single timber member. The 2 doors are on 2 very high sandstone steps. The main framework rises from heavy cill on small stone plinth course, and at the right hand end, adjoining No.15, Mill Street (qv), is a dragon beam, suggesting a further jetty on the return in the original building. Brackets help to carry the jetty, which has a moulded bressumer. A large stack in C17 brickwork runs laterally central to the ridge. At the back is one gabled dormer with replacement window, and various lights in further timber-framing. The wing has a gable stack. INTERIOR not inspected. This is the best retained of this important row of early timber-framed cottages, at a visually important street corner opposite Abbey Mill (qv), and set back behind the raised pavement (qv), to minimise flooding risk.
