House, now shop. Mid C18, altered C19 and C20. Sandstone
ashlar, and a slate roof. Double-depth plan, with the
staircase at the original back at the right, and a large,
later, full-width rear extension.
3 storeys, above a cellar, and 3 bays, with rusticated
chamfered quoins and a projecting eaves cornice. The ground
floor now has a mid C20 shop front. The upper windows have
slightly-projecting surrounds with triple keystones, and
Victorian 4-pane sashes. The rocking horse placed in front of
the first-floor central window dates from c1987, but is the
third to act as the shop's sign.
INTERIOR: above the first half-landing the staircase is
original, dogleg in form with an open string and carved
brackets, with 3 column-on-vase balusters per tread up to the
second floor and 2 per tread up to the attic.
HISTORY: New Street was developed from 1748, and this must
have been one of the first houses built.
