098 [Situation] Nearly the centre of the Sheet.
An old building three storeys high in a dilapidated state at present unoccupied and has been so for a long time. One apartment of it only is occupied as a dwelling by an Old Woman (Mrs. Mawer the mother of the present tenant). The walls are about four feet thick built of ashlar work but the exterior of the whole building appears to have been a good deal changed (at least as regards the enlarging of the windows, &c.,) since its first erection. The roof still remains but very much out of repair. The date 1631 is cut on a stone in the wall close to the eaves
