December 2003. Visit.
Exterior briefly seen. Impression is of one overall façade with doorway in central projection, not mentioned on Listing. Certainly present and not mentioned is a blocked carriage arch with Classical mask keystone at south end of No. 3A. The large cellars (18th century or older) beneath Nos. 4-5 extend under this range as well, and the 16th century wall inside No. 4 might continue inside (see NHER 15117 for further information). The external paint of the façade was added for the making of the film 'Revolution' in the 1980s.
