Summary

Nos 16 and 18 Old Market Place is a late 16th century timber-framed building with an 18th century red brick front, forming a crossing with a ring at the rear. Interestingly this wing dates to the 14th or early 15th century and is a raised aisled hall with a cambered tie-beam supporting a crown post with braces to the collar purlin and collar. The roof timbers are heavily smoke blackened. This rear wing is stuccoed, and is said to be the only brown raised aisle hall in Norfolk, although there are others in Essex and Suffolk. No 18 has two small 19th century shop windows with pilasters and a central pilastered doorway with a continuous entablature.
