1685-1/7/139 (East side)


Former warehouse, now a shop. Mid C18, partly rebuilt in the
late C19, with C20 alterations. Roughly coursed sandstone
rubble with dressed stone dressings in the original portion to
the left along King Street, and squared coursed sandstone to
the right. Rectangular plan parallel to the street, with a
loading slot (now visible only on the first and second floors)
just to right of centre, and a waggon entrance in the first
3 storeys and 3 widely-spaced bays to King Street, with a
canted corner containing the recessed shop entrance, and 2
narrow bays to the right of Old Sir John's Arcade. The ground
floor was altered c1900 by the insertion of a shop front whose
fascia survives. The loading slot is now partly glazed, but
retains on the second floor the corbels to support a platform.
The first-floor window above the waggon entrance has been
lengthened and has lost its central mullion; the second floor
window is original and retains a chamfered mullion. The
windows to the right of the loading slot are in both cases
similar but slightly taller. (All these windows have surrounds
with a slight chamfer.) To right of the entrance there are on
both upper floors 2 windows with plain reveals and 4-pane
