A Grade II listed building, 17thC with incomplete timber frame and early 19thC re-fronting. Very narrow path on busy road made for tricky photography - as can be seen in my first photo where Roger Templeman goes for it! Photos at:

This building is part of the Bell Hotel as far as I can tell but it isn't obvious. It's a few metres east of the main frontage on a brick pillar. Only a very narrow pavement on a busyish road so slightly awkward to get a close up photo. Easily found. http://maps.jochta.com/benchmarks.php?waypoint=FB1966

At the described location. Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.
