House, perhaps originally an urban linhay or other outbuilding. Part of a multi-phase terrace which includes Nos 30 & 31 to left (qv). Late C17 or early C18 with later alterations. Painted stone rubble; slate roof gabled at ends; right end stack shared with No.35 (qv), with stone rubble shaft and old pots. Plan: built at right-angles to No.35 and facing east into one of the larger courts (Fowler's Court) behind the south side of Fore Street. Single-depth plan, with one room on the ground floor and C20 stairs in the rear right corner. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with central recessed plank door, flanked by probably late C19 two-light timber casements, 3 panes per light. One central first-floor 3-light casement, 3 panes per light; small C20 one-light window to left. INTERIOR: chamfered crossbeams with small step stops visible to rear. Stops do not show on the front where the beams are mortised into a substantial rail. Lintel over doorway has redundant mortises indicating re-use. Small, probably C20 plain open fireplace on right end wall in stack shared with No.35. Historical note: the court with which this building is associated incorporates a former cider house and was used for workshops and small-scale urban industry. An altered but early surviving example of a back-court building, formerly a characteristic feature of the town.
