House, now shop. C18 or possibly older. Slate-hung gable end
to front otherwise painted rubble and rendered upper floor to
rear wing; steep asbestos slate roof. Deep plan end on to the

INTERIOR: remains of former use as a butcher's including a
floor drain and meat hooks; open to the boarded underside of

rare type of this date, one of only a few such examples left
in Cornwall. The early C19 shop front is also a rare survival.
