House in row, with shop. C18 front on C17 structure, with probably C14 hall range to rear. Front is Flemish bond brickwork, tile roof, remainder timber-framed, brick or plaster panels; brick stacks. PLAN: The parallel-plan front range, partly over Mason's Court to the right, is a C17 rebuilding probably on the site of C14 solar block; behind this is the 3-bay C14 hall range, formerly open to roof and now floored and sub-divided; two C14 bays to rear of hall were probably originally floored. EXTERIOR: the street front is 2 storeys with attic, 2-windowed. Gabled C18 two-light casement dormers with early leading, in a steep-pitched roof which has a high hipped end of half roof visible to the left. First floor has 16-pane sashes under voussoirs, and ground floor a C20 plate-glass shop front. The painted brick parapet has a concrete coping. In the court the wall to the left is framed, and the back wall is in heavy framing with brick nogging; the corner post rises from the centre of a bressumer running across the court. A large stack in C17 brick is at the rear eaves of the front range, adjacent to the hall. Behind the main range is a steeply-pitched gabled roof over the early hall, which is reported to retain head of C14 two-light west window. INTERIOR partly inspected: the 3-bay hall range includes cruck trusses of very large scantling, with collar and braced tie, and large chamfered wind-braces. Smoke blackening to roof timbers, the rear truss being a full cruck with square-set ridge on yoke. The C14 two-bay roof to rear of hall (and originally divided from it by a closed truss) has straight principals to similar apex. VCH records 2-centred arch surviving from one of 2 opposed doorways to rear (south) end of rear wing. A complex and important example of a C14 merchant's house of hall and solar type, which would repay further investigation. (Victoria County History: Gloucestershire: London: 1968-: 126).
