Summary

These shops and domestic quarters were built on a plot assembled by the purchase of two separate pieces of land in the late 16th century. The timber framed structure was built in the early 17th century. The building was subdivided before 1675 and then rejoined by 1825. The house was owned by John Gall in 1877. He was probably responsible for the continuous refacing of the building in brick.

(S3) records as The Old Post Office and Burrage House.
The site of this house seems to have been assembled by the purchase of two adjacent properties by John and Robert Burrage in 1598 to 1599. The early 17th century date given by the survey is consistent with this. It was recently subdivided in 1675. The west end had a new built buttery and shop and the east end a shed, stables, outhouses and shops. Both parts were back in one ownership by 1825 and by 1877 they had been acquired by John Gall who was probably responsible for the continuous brick front.

May 2004. Dendrochronological analysis.
Seven samples were obtained, three of which were usable. Felling appears to have occurred after 1694 and before 1729, and construction is likely to have taken place within this period as there is some evidence that some timbers were initially utilised green.
