Visited 25th July 1977 by Simon Timms. Owner has unblocked an arch (window or door) through into number 15. Stone rubble wall with a brick arch. Owner says that there was lichen on the wall surface, therefore it was possibly an outside wall. A fiireplace was also recently revealed in the pottery shop.
