slate roof. 2 storeys with attic and cellars. High Street

paned double-hung sash window with stuccoed head on each
floor. Beneath these is a cellar light with similar head and
iron grille. Towards the S is a similar window on the first

grand contemporary shopfront with 5 attached fluted columns
with Corinthianesque capitals of vertical palm leaves and

with old metal street name plate on first floor. To the rear
(E), is a lean-to extension of painted brick with 12 paned
double-hung sash window on first floor over a simple entrance
door with stuccoed head. The rear yard facing wall has a
corner window of overlapping panes of glass. On the E part of
the roof are 2 chimney stacks of gault brick, one with 2 and
one with 3 octagonal shafts.
INTERIOR: the well staircase has reeded newel post and
wreathed handrail of softwood and skylight over to attic,
which has replaced rooflight on ridge. The first floor retains
several 4-panelled doors with moulded architraves. Large
cellar lined with flint and brick dressings.
