A range of timber-framed and plastered buildings of various dates but originally all one C15 hall house of which now only the north cross wing remains (No 13) Nos 11 and 12 are of C16 origin and replace the former main block and south cross wing of the C15 house. Nos 10, 11 and 12 were formerly the Black Lion Inn and No 12 is now called Lion House. No 10 was probably added when it became an inn and has a large carriage entrance at the north end, with exposed beams and joists. Roofs tiled. Two storeys mainly with 2 storeys and attics to the north cross wing. The north and south cross wings have interesting panelled pargetting in geometric patterns, partly old and partly restored. The timber-framing is exposed in the gable of the north cross wing and the upper storey was formerly jettied but was underbuilt in the C18 or early C19 with 2 bow shop windows with glazing bars and a central 6-panel door. The gable is jettied on a carved bressumer. The windows of Nos 10 and 11 are mainly double-hung sashes with glazing bars and there are 3 splayed bays on the ground storey. One doorway has a moulded architrave, ornamental frieze and cornice. Gabled wings extend at the rear. There are good original features including moulded ceiling beams and other C15 and C16 features. A number of gables at the rear.
