(Jaggers' list)
Peg-tile roof, two storeys plus attic lit by three dormers. Dormer windows look like later insertions. Windows on first floor replaced at same time. Probably timber-framed. Needs investigation. Presumably C17 or earlier but unlikely to predate 1648 because nearly all the houses in this part of town were destroyed during the Siege of Colchester in that year. Probably c 1650-60.
Currently pawn shop.
