Terraced house with workshop front. Late C18. Brown brick set
in Flemish bond, roof obscured by parapet. Three storeys,
three-window range. Ground floor has left-hand entrance to
house with cornice and overlight; the rest is a wooden front
which appears to retain the general lines of a late C18 or
early C19 workshop front. Upper windows have cambered arches
and 8/8 sashes, some of original design. Parapet. Brickwork of
the first and second floors much renewed. The shopfront is a
rare survivor of the type in the locality.
