(481) House, No. 27, originally of two storeys, was built in the 15th century and heightened by the addition of a third storey in the 16th or early 17th century; it is probably a continuation of the two-storeyed range to the S.W., Nos. 21, 25 (479). It has been modernised in recent years and few traces of either of the timber-framed building phases remain visible.

The front elevation id rendered and has a jetty to both first and second floors. Building operations in 1973 revealed timbers of very thin scantling on the second floor. The fenestration is 18th-century and later. Inside, the only significant feature is a cmebered tie-beam which remains in the N. wall of the first-floor front room and supports a later beam carrying the thin joists of the second floor. Peg-holes indicate it was originally the tie-beam of a crown-post truss which had braces from tie-beam to crown-post and from the underside of the tie-beam to posts. The wing at the rear was also originally timber-framed but has been rebuilt.
