History
     
   This has a Queen Anne front, with an attractive 1950s hooded doorway and double sash hung windows. The house contains,however, the main framework of a medieval timber-framed house, with an overhang on the street front. Some of the old framework may be seen inside the modern garage on the left, including a bracket which once supported the overhang. The room above the garage is a modern addition, but has been cleverly made to match the rest of the house. This side of St. Marv's Road must have had a very attractive appearance in medieval times, as four out of five houses along this side, down to the King's Arms, and the small cottage at the corner of Market Lane, were timber-framed houses, with considerable timbering still remaining behind later fronts. Wise Follies, next to the inn, has the lighter framing of the 18th century, being fronted with 'mathematical tiles', which simulate brickwork. Elham Study
