Grade II Listed houses. The twin gable No.6 is a 15th to 16th century timber-framed house. No.7 The Crooked House is in fact the south cross wing of a 15th century hall house much altered in the 18th and 19th century. Previously The Crooked House Gallery from about 1993 it is currently (2017) occupied by Munnings Tearoom, established in 2004 who moved here 2015. Their two websites claim a build date around 1395-1400. The 1840s nursery rhyme about the crooked man, his crooked cat and crooked mouse was supposedly inspired by this building. With the rich fast growing late 15th century town, many houses were built in haste with green timber. As the wood began to dry it started to twist.
