Full Description

This three-storey brick house of three bays, with a lower addition at the north end, stands end-on to the Church facing east onto a small green. Documentary sources suggest that there was a house on this site in 1584, and there is an inventory of 1615 recording a house of two rooms with detached kitchen, butcher's shop, and buttery. The present house is later, built in the late 17th century as a three-room house, in brick with some diaper work. In the late 18th century the house was refronted and the walls raised, and soon after the northern bay was rebuilt for use as an apothecary's shop. Alterations and additions were made at various times throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. (1)
