Houses and commercial premises on street frontage. Late C19. Good coursed and
squared limestone to alternating rusticated quoins, plinth, and cill bands,
Welsh slate roof. A late Victorian structure on a larger scale than earlier

3 storeys, 3+2 windows. Ground floor has a 2-light plate glass display window
with slender central shaft and a moulded head now modified, double-panelled door

flat-stone hood with moulded edge. Overlight has basket-handle arch. To right,
near centre of building, a 2-storey canted bay with plate glass windows; then a
plate glass sash in moulded surround and basket-handle head. Far right a door
with 3 over 3 panels under overlight, and in richly modulated surround with
hood, all as other doors. First floor has 4-pane sashes, and central canted bay;
second floor has five small 4-pane sashes; all these in moulded surrounds,
basket-handle heads; and to wide stone cills on brackets. Deep brick stack,

second floor string, moulded first floor string, small plinth. Back has various
glazing bar sashes, and a round-arched doorway, and is probably older than the

vigorous scheme, over-scaled for its prominent location.
