wing C17 or earlier. Solid roughcast walls. Slated roofs,
except for corrugated asbestos on rear section of wing.
Rendered chimney on rear wall of main range; base of another
on rear gable of wing, with small C20 brick chimney on top.
Front range probably double-fronted and 2 rooms deep. Rear

also occupies the former detached back block of 4 Allhalland
Street (qv). Cart-entrance under left-hand end of front range.
Front range 3 storeys; rear wing 2 storeys. Front to
Allhalland Street of 4-window range. Ground storey has late
C19 or early C20 fishmonger's shop front; pair of 4-paned,
removable display windows with tiled bases, flanking

flanking pilasters and entablature with fluted consoles at

faced Hind Court, until the buildings on the S side of the
latter were demolished, opening it up to Bridge Street.

interior. Sloops Restaurant has chamfered and stopped
ceiling-beam in rear ground-floor room. Remainder of interior
