Type and Period (1)
Late 15th century half-timbered house with tiled roofs. Front part of No. 6 is earliest in date and was the original hall with a two storey wing at the back. No.3 is a double-gabled building. It is said to have formed part of the Angel Inn.<1><2>
Dendrochronological assessment was undertaken by Martin Bridge in 2016. Four timbers from this building dated and were found to have come from trees felled in the winter of 1429/30 – making construction most likely in 1430, or within a year or two after this date – about half a century before the anticipated date of the building.<3>
