Homend, no. 5 & 7
On the evidence of the continuity of the ceiling beams, it is likely that Nos. 5 and 7 The Homend form one building of mid-17th century date. Part of the gable end framing is visible at the north end of the range indicating that it was originally two storeys high rather than the present three. The façade is work of the late 18th century, by which time 5 and 7 had become separate buildings. There is a long 18th century range to the rear that was used as an assembly room. [Eisel, J. & Shoesmith, R. 2003. 187-196].
It was for many years the New Inn.
