mid C19 double-fronted shop with plain pilasters and entablature with moulded
cornice. 8 large panes to each shop window. The shop front continues around left-

panelled door, rectangular overlight and pilasters supporting shaped brackets in
turn supporting bay window above right-hand doorway to house with rectangular
overlight and flat canopy on shaped brackets. First floor window left and right

raised architraves. All sashes with horizontal glazing bars only. One window to
each floor on left-hand (east) gable end, similar sahses and architraves.

This large building is situated in a prominent central position in the town. The
largely unaltered exterior with a fine Victorian shop front makes a valuable
contribution to the townscape.
