columns of painted sandstone between antae. A plain bressumer
carries the second storey which has a moulded base-fascia,
narrow and braced panels, a central oriel of 6 lights with
moulded mullions and transoms, the end lights forming
quadrants and the 2 central lights projecting further as a
semicircular bow; there is an adjoining transomed sidelight in
each side bay. The third storey, jettied on carved brackets,
has braced panels, 2 canted oriels of 5 lights with moulded
mullions, on central brackets; 2 gables jettied above the
oriels, each with 2 ornate quatrefoil panels; moulded
bargeboards.
The rear is of brick, with no visible features of special
interest.
INTERIOR: there is medieval stonework in the rear stockroom in
the Row storey. The undercroft is not readily accessible and
has not been inspected at time of survey. There are no other
visible features of special interest.
Nos 5-31 (odd) are collectively known as `Saddler's Row' and
were previously listed as Row numbers.
