Full Description

The Board Inn, Nos. 5, 6, of three storeys, had a timber-framed front block of the late 16th or early 17th century. It was of two bays with upper floors jettied. A third bay at the S. end was similar and of the same date but of separate construction. The roofs had reduced principals with two purlins each side housed into them (Fig. 7t). Behind the front block was a mid 18th-century brick-built wing containing a central staircase with rooms to each side, some of which retained original panelling. Demolished 1957.
