Houses, Nos. 42, 43, of three storeys, form one block. No. 42 was built in 1825 (Merchant Adventurers' Co. Minute Book D12), and No. 43 probably soon afterwards, but the N. half of No. 43, which included a through-carriageway, was demolished in 1964. A rainwater head carries the initials I N. Each house now has a transverse staircase between front and back rooms. At the rear is a two-storeyed 15th-century range of two bays, occupied as part of No. 42. It has stuccoed brick walls replacing timber framing, of which little now remains; a central crown-post roof truss with cross-bracing was originally closed and had a partition below. Restored since 1970.
