In early C19 the room was partitioned and extended at rear to form small rear
service room and lobby to front entrance and a shop window was inserted into the
front. Originally it was probably part of a large house which included No. 7 to
2 storeys. 2 window range. First floor 2 early C19 12-pane sashes. Ground floor

early C19 2 leanto extension with rendered stack.

inserted. Fireplace blocked and with early C19 panelled cupboard door to left and
timber winder stairs to right. Much of the early C19 interior joinery survives
including panelled and plank doors. Roof space not accessible.
This is part of one of the most complete rows of early houses to have survived in
