Pair of houses with shop. Late C19. Solid rendered front with
wooden bay windows. Slate mansard roof. Large red-brick
chimney on centre of ridge, the upper courses projecting to
form an entablature. Classical style.
3 storeys with garret; 4-window range. Ground storey has 2
later shop fronts. That to left is late C20; that to right
early C20 with coloured leaded glass at the tops of the
Upper storeys have in the centre a pair of bay windows with
curved sides. Each storey of these is finished with an
entablature having a panelled frieze; between-storeys they are
linked by further panels. Sashes with horns; the middle ones
have patterned margin-panes, those in the upper storeys
forming round arches. Outer windows narrow and round-arched,
with moulded archivolts and keyblocks.
Linking the sills and imposts to the bays are moulded
stringcourses, the between-storeys panelling and top
entablatures of the bays similarly continued across the

moulded archivolts and keyblocks; the outer 2 plain with pent
roofs. Rear wall (visible from New Street) has sash windows
with a single upright glazing-bar to each sash.
The houses form an important part of the townscape,
particularly when looking up the High Street from The Quay.
