Right return is gable end to road with 12-pane sash to ground and jettied first floor; original barge boards with carved cusped decoration. Rear gabled lateral stone stack, probably a C16 or C17 addition. Single-storey addition attached to west gable end not of special interest. Interior; ground floor room facing onto street has partly blocked stone fireplace with chamfered Tudor-arched openings to main fire and bread ovens, moulded cross beam ceiling. Rear room has deep chamfered beams. Inserted C19 stairs against middle closed truss with blocked cambered-headed doorway.
