(509) House, No. 32, is of three storeys. It was originally a two-storey, timber-framed building of two bays, built in the 15th century, a few of the main timbers of this period remaining. A third storey was added in the following century. In c. 1840 the house was completely refronted and in modern times it has been converted to commercial use; the back wall has been removed and the building extended to provide modern showrooms.
