House with shop (derelict at time of inspection, September 1989). Early to mid
C19 but very likely incorporating earlier work (internal inspection not
possible). Rendered sandstone; slate roof. Plan not confirmed. 4 unequal
storeys, that to the 1st floor (containing principal rooms) taller than those
above, the top storey probably storerooms. 3 window range (2 windows to 1st
floor), all windows with raised surrounds; some horned sashes survive, other
openings blocked. Mid C19 shop front with simple pilasters; panelled door in
deep reveals. Access to entry to extreme left. Included for group value; an
internal inspection could reveal features of interest.
