House, No. 17, consists of one-and-a-half bays surviving from an originally longer timber-framed range of two storeys and attic, jettied towards the street, and probably built in the 16th century. At the rear was a late 18th-century brick extension; this connected to a two-storey house of similar date, standing behind No. 15, which faced S.W. and had a central staircase with rooms to each side. The framed range had been much altered and the roof rebuilt; after deteriorating badly, it was reconstructed in 1972 and at the same time the 18th-century buildings behind were demolished and replaced by new structures.
