House now office over shop, formerly the Catherine Wheel Inn.

incorporate fragments of building from 1414. Brick pilasters,
rendered and colourwashed panels, Welsh slate roof between
abutments.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, 2 bays. Ground floor has plain 3-unit
display window and shallow fascia over, first floor has traces
of mouldings on sill beam to jetty, second floor plain, to
both floors are 3-light timber casement windows with
rectangular leaded lights, simple parapet.
INTERIOR: there are some chamfered beams at first floor-level
otherwise it is totally rebuilt. Substantially restructured,
but significant for its early origins and townscape value in
the medieval town.
