A probable C17 timber-framed building refronted in late C18. The facade is
of grey headers with red brick window dressings, quoins to both the projections
and the outer strip, modillion cornice and parapet. Three storeys, 2 windows.
Each window bay projects, leaving a small recessed vertical strip in the centre
and at each side. The 1st floor windows are set in round-headed arcading and
are flanked by pilasters. Glazing bars intact. The shopfront is marked 'Estd.
1835' and dates from this period but is without its glazing bars. It comprises
2 windows, each of 2 round-headed sections flanked by pilasters, with a double
doorcase in the centre having a rectangular fanlight and a single similar door case
at the north-west end having a door of 3 moulded panels. Beside this is another
doorcase leading to the passage through the building. The whole shopfront
is in a moulded architrave surround. The timber-framing with red brick infilling
is visible in the south-east wall of the passage through the ground floor of
the house at the north-west end of the front.
