Full Description

Nos 2-4 originally a late 16th-century timber-framed structure of at least three bays, jettied to the street. In the early 19th century, the jettied front was replaced by a flush brick elevation, probably on the line of the first-floor jetty; the back bay was rebuilt and extended in Victorian times.

The S.W. front, is of stuccoed brick, with flush framed sash windows to each floor. The surround of the doorway to No. 4 (actually in the adjoining No. 6) has reeded pilasters carrying enriched brackets.
Some of the original framing is visible and on the second floor studs in the S.E. wall are all grooved for infilling and numbered, and on an adjacent main post is a carpenter's mark.
