(318) No. 1 consists of three houses of different dates now forming one property. The N.W. house is one surviving bay, about 15 ft. square, of a longer timber-framed range, probably of the 16th century; it is of two storeys, with a jetty towards the street. Much of the original framing remains, with curved braces up to the first-floor beams, and from first floor up to the front posts and from back posts to tie-beam. The roof is of collar-rafter construction with purlins low on each side supported by curved struts. The other two houses, built of brick in the early or mid 19th century, are three-storeyed.
