House, No. 81 is a timber-framed 15th-century building of three-storeys and of two bays depth. A narrower timber-framed range of three storeys was added to the rear and was originally longer than the present single bay. It's S.W. rear gable end, rebuilt in brickwork in the 18th century, incorporates posts to the angles with evidence for continuation of the range.
The stuccoed and painted N.E. street elevation has both upper storeys jettied above a modern shop front, and at the side is a through-passage. A large 19th-century window lights the first floor and there is a Yorkshire sash window above. The S.W. rear elevation has stucco-rendering to the original gable-end., and the added wing, of slightly less height, is in brick with brick coping. At the western angleof the gable is a post with enlarged head and below the shortened wall-plate is a mortice for a brace. Modern outbuildings cover the ground floor and part of the first floor. Internally little remains, apart from an exposed cambered tie-beam with a curved brace to the central truss at second floor.
