front; at one time it was a glass moulding works, and during
the C19 it was a public house, The Red Lion and French Horn;
now offices. Yellow brick set in Flemish bond, stucco, roof of
slate. Three storeys, three-window range. The ground-floor

pilasters framing flat-arched entrances with cornices and
overlights to either end, fascia and cornice overall, and one
multi-paned window between the entrances; first floor stuccoed
with pilasters to three flat-arched windows, the entablatures
now missing; public house sign; second-floor windows
segmental-arched; parapet; two-span roof.
INTERIOR: the ground floor has tongue-and-groove panelling to
full height to front and back rooms, side passage and
staircase as far as first floor; it continues on the party
wall to the second floor. Good iron fireplace and grate of
c.1900 in ground floor back room. Staircase has plain newels
and enclosed balusters as far as first floor, turned balusters
above. First-floor front room has original panelling to side
and back walls, the front rebuilt c.1985 as were ceilings
throughout. The second-floor front room to the left is
panelled to dado height and has a plain early C19 fireplace;
early C19 corner fireplace in the back room.
