GILSON, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV128828.

Two storey house built in 16th century with one main fireplace somewhere within the building and half hipped ends. Altered in the 17th century with fireplaces and chimneys fitted into the end part bays and the layout replanned. Further altered by conversion to a shop with accomodation at both ends in 19th-20th century. On the first floor the remains of four partially surviving jointed crucks can be seen. The crucks are tall and the wall height has not been raised, suggesting that the house was two storeyed from the start (gilson).
