floors (now derelict and empty) C1790 with early 19th-century
alteration and extension. Smooth faced sandstone of regular size
and courses, stone slate roof. Three storeys. Three bay south
front: first two bays original 1790's build of two storeys as
defined by ashlar quions; raised another storey c1810 and
another bay added - this breaks forward slightly and has quioned
angle. First two bays have ground floor shop windows (blocked)
with remains of 2-light two-pane sash set within applied box-
frame on brackets. Set between is doorway (blocked) with
monolithic lintel and tie-stone jambs. First floor has 2-light

surrounds. Upper floor has 2-light windows with plain-stone
surrounds and slightly projecting sills (lacks glazing but
probably sixteen-paned sashes originally - evidence, rear

jambs, retains six-panelled door. Door-case has stone corbelled
hood/platform for taking-in doorway set directly above (blocked)
- this has tie-stone jambs and a quoined lintel. Ground floor

floor 2-light flat-faced mullioned windows with plain-stone
surrounds and projecting sills. Former stack to left gable and
ridge-stock at division between second and third bays, removed
c1990 (when doors and ground floor windows were blocked to make
building safe and secure by order of Council).

Rear (north elevation): three second-floor windows. Early 19th
century addition to left has doorway with monolithic jambs and
similar sized wide doorway above as taking-in door. Right of
door is 12-paned fixed light in plain-stone surrounds and doorway
cutin with monolithic lintel at junction with quoins of earlier
build. Upper floors have 2-light flat-faced mullioned window
with thin plain-stone surrounds and slightly projecting sills
lacking glazing but with the evidence for 24-paned glazing. To
right earliest build has 3-light flat-faced mullioned with
overlapping lintel and sills at first floor. Second floor has
similar window to first bay. Widely spaced gutter brackets.
