This is one of the oldest houses in Canterbury (It is described
in Scoffham's book in the bibliography.)
It was restored in 1973 by a local architect, Anthony Swaine,
and was originally a large hall house with a high central area with
louvres at the top to let out the smoke from the fires. (The chimneys
are later additions).
Typical of these hall houses is the central recess, which you can
see in the second photo above. Compare this building with Simple
Simon's - St. Radigund's Hall, with a similar recess.
It used to be a pub in the 17th century. It has two storeys, and
is timber-framed with a plaster infill between the timbers. In the
18th century it was refronted.
