House, No. 4, timber-framed and of 15th-century date, is of three storeys gabled and jettied to the street, and four bays in depth. On the first and probably the second floors there were originally no structural partitions internally. In the 17th century a large chimneybreast, with staircase alongside, was built in the second bay, dividing the house into two rooms on each floor. The fireplaces in this chimney-breast had chamfered brick jambs and wooden lintels, but were altered in the early 19th century to smaller openings with hob-grates. The staircase, little of which survives, has splat balusters and square newels. The roof is of crown-post construction with collar-purlin and collared rafters. The house was built against No. 5 King's Court, utilising the N. wall framing of that house as its S. wall, whilst No. 3 King's Court (242) in turn was built against it on the N. side, using the same technique. Taken down and rebuilt 1963.
