Name:No 8 Market Place


No 8 is a timber-framed building, possibly predating the fire of 1616. It has also been suggested that this building was originally two separate properties, one in Market Place and a later one in Bridewell Street, both built after the fire. The building is jettied on more than one side, with a dragon beam and stairs to the cellar descending below the winding stairs by the gable chimney stack. There are also good 19th century shop fronts on the ground floor.
