Anne Pytts, with mid-C20 alterations. Handmade brick with plain tiled roofs,

all have gauged flat heads. Main north-west elevation: ground floor windows
are the original wooden mullion and transom ones. Central range has four
windows and four doorways with moulded architraves and C20 doors, two of
which are partly glazed. Above the central two doors and windows is a painted
timber pediment which contains a circular motif enclosing three shields
and the word "SALOP". There is a ground floor window and a leaded attic light
at the gable ends of both of the wings, and above the attic light is an
additional brick band of two courses. There is a blocked doorway in both
