(north side)
Nos.18 and 20
Former Kings Arms Hotel, now shop and office. Probably mid to later C18,
recently radically remodelled internally. Coursed squared elvan with
granite dressings, Welsh slate roof. Original plan not known, but the
surviving facade is U-shaped. Three storeys and 5 bays, symmetrical, with
3-bay centre between projecting wings; the centre has a ground-floor arcade
formed by a wagon entrance under a semi-elliptical arch with pendant
keystone flanked by square-headed doorways with rectangular lintels,
restored sashed windows of 12 panes at 1st floor and 6 panes above, all
with raised sills and splayed voussoirs. The narrow one-bay wings have
matching fenestration including 12-pane sashes at ground floor, and hipped
roofs. Ridge chimneys in line with the wings. Otherwise, altered.
