Timber was largely used in the construction of houses, some speciments of which yet remain, the most celebrated being parts of Crosby Hall, in Bishopsgate, London. Coventry also contains some fine and carefully preserved specimens.

Most of the centre of Coventry was destroyed by German bombers in the Second World War in retaliation for the Dresden bombing. I cannot say whether this particular building was one of the handful that survived. The period described in the book here is 1461 – 1483, so these are fifteenth-century half-timbered buildings.
