Timberframed construction, underbuilt in brick on the ground floor, the first floor tile hung; rear block brick to the ground floor, first floor weatherboarded; brick stacks.

Interior: The left hand room of the south cottage has massive closely-spaced joists and a crossbeam. The right hand room has replaced ceiling beams and a C20 fireplace. The party wall with the north cottage has massive arch braces to the tie-beam with hollow mouldings, the tie-beam is also moulded on the soffit. The north cottage has ground floor right side room with massive closely spaced floor joists, beam to north with groove for a sliding shutter and bracket forjetty. Open fireplace with wooden bressumer. Old brick floor from front door east to west.

II

House, divided into 2 cottages. Circa mid/late C15 origins, altered in the C19. Framed construction, underbuilt in brick on the ground floor, the first floor tile-hung; rear block brick to the ground floor, first floor weatherboarded; brick stacks.

Plan: West facing range. Details of plan unclear on survey (1988) as access limited to the south cottage only. Single depth main range, 4 rooms wide with an axial stack and end stacks; later service block added at the rear, heated by 4 rear lateral stacks. The house originated as a late medieval open hall, the main hall truss, at least to tie-beam level, survives in the party wall between the 2 cottages. The south cottage is 2 rooms wide. The right hand room is heated and possibly an extension, most of the carpentry C20.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 5-window front (4 windows to the ground floor); each cottage double-fronted with a C19 plank door with a porch hood on upward-curving brackets; 2- and 3-light C19 casements, 6 panes per light. Roof half-hipped at left end, gabled at right end. Axial stack with staggered handmade brick shaft to the front of the ridge with a corbelled brick cornice; end stacks with plain shafts.

Interior: The left hand room of the south cottage has massive closely-spaced joists and a crossbeam. The right hand room has replaced ceiling beams and a C20 fireplace. The party wall with the north cottage has massive arch braces to the tie-beam with hollow mouldings, the tie-beam is also moulded on the soffit.

Roof: No access to roofspace at time of survey but the north cottage is thought to have a crown-post roof construction.

An interesting house which would repay more detailed investigation.
