2 separate houses and shops, formerly Nos 1 and 2, now
combined as one shop. Early and mid C19. Part white brick and
slate roof, part timber framed and rendered. The corner
building is in white brick with a fully-hipped slate roof and
a wide modillion eaves soffit. A raised brick band runs
between the 1st and 2nd storey windows.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars. 2 window range on each
facade, all sashes with single vertical glazing bars in deep
reveals. The 1st storey windows have flat gauged cement arches
with vermiculated keystones and on the Cornhill facade they
have diminished side lights.
The ground storey has a late C20 shop front in Regency style
with a corner entry. The former No.2 is timber-framed and
rendered with a flat roof behind a plain parapet and moulded
cornice. 2 window range, all sashes in flush cased frames with
a single vertical glazing bar. The ground storey has a C20
double shop front with a central entry.
INTERIOR: extensively modernised. The cellar is now part of
the retail area. No visible part of either building appears to
be prior to C19 in date.
