Originally this was a cruck-framed longhouse from the 15th century.
It was encased in rubble in the 17th century and later with brick.
In 1831 it was the scene of a murder.
In 1928 it was divided into cottages and then in 1993 a fire reduced to it to just the original cruck frame.
You can see how it looked in 2000 in this earlier post
