No. 24, of two storeys and containing fragments of timber framing, is of the 17th century but was almost entirely remodelled in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was the Beech Tree p.h. in 1851. The front elevation is of stuccoed brickwork above a modern shop front. A plat-band serves as a continuous sill to two late 19th-century sash windows beneath a steep pediment with a moulded cornice. At the first floor a post is incorporated from a vanished adjacent timber-framed house. A lower and narrower block at the rear contains 17th-century brickwork.
