House, No. 5, three-storeyed, timber-framed and of one bay, roofed parallel to the street, is probably the 'new builded house' of Richard Hutton, erected between 1587 and 1593 (YCA, B29, f. 108; Wills, xxv, f. 1487). In the mid 18th century it was refronted in brick, and a three-storey brick wing of equal width was built at the rear. Above a modern shop front, the elevation is rendered and has two hung-sash windows to each floor; the roof is pantiled. Inside, very little of the framing survives.
