Full Description

House, No. 3, of three storeys, was built in the late 16th century as a timber-framed structure gabled to the street, five bays in depth. In the 17th century a large brick chimney-breast was inserted in the central bay. It was extensively altered in the mid 19th century: the gabled front was replaced by a brick elevation, roofed parallel with the street, and an elliptical spiral staircase with moulded and turned balusters was put in beside the chimney-breast. Much of the timber framing was then plastered over, but some remained exposed, especially in the back rooms. The roof over the rear two bays survived little altered, with common rafters, kerbprincipals under the collars, and two purlins each side. Demolished c. 1957.
