Rear, N elevation, Nos 19 & 21 have C20 additions not to be included in this listing, No.17, long continuous rear brick C19 additions (a) 2 storey and (b) single storey. House E end gable visible, weatherboarded, door with 2 flush panels and attached fixed window of 4 panes.

(b) red and yellow bricks, slate roof, two C19 boarded doors, one round headed window with cast-iron lattice glazing and site of another blocked. INTERIOR: has framing of C16 four-bayed house with 2-bay open hall and storeyed end bays (No.17), much altered but basic outer frame visible with a heavy jowled post. No.19 is the high end bay of the open hall, central truss posts with chamfered arched braces to tie-beam, shape continued down post as chamfered fillet, simple crown post roof above, sooted with collar purlin and 2 rising braces to it from the crown posts. No.21, rear side of hall high end cross wall has original studding, widely spaced, approx 56cm between centres, 2 arched braces to tie-beam in framing. Also rectangular pattern of large diameter peg holes, probably for a warping frame. Lower ones possible for bench at hall high end. C18 remodelling has altered the roof structures, side purlin construction was introduced and the 2 gable ends were no doubt changed from being similar having windows set above the tie-beam and half-hip roofs with apex gables above. Now the E end is a simple gable and the W end is a full hip from gablet to tie-beam. No.21 has now an inserted floor which is of late C16-early C17 type with diminished haunched soffit tenons, a partial C17 remodelling between the original house and the C18 form. Quite possibly the site of the central stack could have been established then.
