Rock House


House at end of row. Early C19. Rendered, slate roof.
EXTERIOR: lofty symmetrical front in 3 storeys with 2 large
16-pane sashes to each floor and blank centre section above a
central panelled door in pilasters with closed pediment. The
return gables are plain, with raised coped verges in slight
steps, and a brick stack to the left. A projecting rear
element may house the staircase.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The property appears to be either a late rebuild or possibly
an infill at the extreme W end of the High Street.
