This 17th century flint and brick building has one room each side of a central passage on the ground floor, creating number 2 and number 4. Upstairs there is only a single room. The south elevation was reconstructed in the 19th century and the building was re-roofed in thatch in 1996. It is believed that these two dwellings operated as weaver's cottages.
