raised-and-fielded 6-panel door with moulded architraves and
pulvinated frieze (cornice hood of No.37 missing). Substantial

An area of C17 panelling included panelled door with cockspur
hinges. Overdoor ventilator in passage had panel of
asymmetrical diagonal bars (Chinese Chippendale). Both parts
have tight winder stairs.

cornice. First floor has double-hung sash window with small
panes. Similar but smaller extension on rear of No.37, in
weatherboarding with hipped peg-tile roof and end stack.
