Attic space parallel to Sandford Street has altered 3-bay roof structure with substantial elements of c1500. Moulded, arch-braced truss with its NW post extending down to 1st floor: carpenters' marks, Y-struts above the collar, curved wind brace to NW purlin; the SE principal rafter has been cut away. 2 other queen-strut trusses to SW have grooves or mortices for infill below and above their cambered and chamfered tie beams; the SW end truss is virtually complete whilst the other has lost its apex.
