frieze and shallow moulded gutter cornice. The ground floor is
a modern shop-front; the upper floors each have one sashed
window in the centre, both of 12 panes but the upper with 8
panes in the lower and 4 in the upper leaf. The rear wall is
rebuilt and has various additions at ground floor. Interior,
on the upper floors: C18 fielded panelling in the 1st floor
front room (almost completely intact except below dado rail of
rear wall and in alcove to right of chimney breast), the upper
flights of an open-string staircase with scrolled brackets,
columnar newels, turned balusters (some missing) and ramped
moulded handrail; fielded panel doors; attic with clay floor;
principal-rafter roof truss (halved and pegged at the apex)
