EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, cellar and attics. 2 window range: sashes without glazing-bars in flush cased frames with flat cement arches. 2 gabled dormers have long roofs with pierced ridge tiles, white brick fronts, rendered cheeks and 2-light casement windows. The central doorcase has Tuscan pilasters, a triglyph frieze and cornice, and panelled reveals. Door up steps. INTERIOR: cellar, with flint rubble and some stone blocks in the walling, is divided into 2: on the west, the timber ceiling has a small beam and joists on edge, on the east, a heavy main beam and joists set flat. On the ground storey, the room on the west has a main ceiling-beam exposed with chamfer and curved stop with groove; in the room to the east a main beam with step stops, and an open fireplace with a chamfered and cambered timber lintel. The brickwork at the back of the hearth is a C20 replacement, the sides rendered, the jambs of re-used Abbey stone, consisting of part of 2 matching Norman nook shafts with their original surrounds, standing upside down on rectangular stone blocks. A light grey masonry paint has been applied to all the stonework. On the 1st storey, the party wall with No.4 (qv) has a cambered tie-beam with no pegging for studs; re-used ceiling joists have been introduced as studding and there is evidence that the roof has been raised. The original rear wallplate survives along the eastern half of the building, terminating in a partly-charred post which has an empty mortice for a brace. The roofs and attics and the 1st-storey room on the west all date from the later C19. A small C18 rear extension has softwood beams.
