Full description

Listed (S1) as a 19th century house with medieval remains, the latter are in fact the south wall of the infirmary and are described under site NHER 225. However, evaluation report in file describes a 15th century brick undercroft, as well as the medieval origins of the building and its post medieval development.
There is also an evaluation for number 65 filed under NHER 26079 which partly modifies the above report.
