Full Description

No 6 timber-framed and probably of the early 17th century, may have been jettied along the street front, but the front was rebuilt in brick, probably with the fronts of Nos. 2 and 4, in the early 19th century. The house consisted of at least two bays roofed parallel with the street; a central chimney breast was inserted in the 17th century. Enough of the roof structure survived to show that it had a slightly cambered tie-beam, with side purlins clasped between a collar and rafters. In the gable the studs (5 in. by 3 in.) are grooved for infilling and the rafters are pegged at the apex, with no ridge.

Demolished 1956.
