slate roof; flush verges to sides and rear, flush softwood fascia and barge-
boards to central gable and wings at front. 2 chimneys. Blocked circular
opening in central gable. No 8 retains Georgian sashes front and side. No 9

bay formerly used as shop window. Doors replaced. Upper windows to No 9 and
