House, now shop. Probably C17; altered. Random mixed rubble,
with rendered facade, roof not visible but probably slate.
Rectangular 2-unit plan at right-angles to street.
EXTERIOR: gabled 2.5-storey 3-window facade of c1870-80, with
symmetrical shop-front at ground floor. This has a central
splay to a slightly-recessed doorway (with C20 glazed door),
flanked by plate-glass windows, all these opening framed by
simple pilasters which have incised enrichment suggesting an
Ionic Order, and over them is a frieze with painted lettering,
canted forwards over the doorway. The 1st floor has a canted
oriel window in the centre with sashed glazing, flanked by
narrow one-light sashes with 4-pane upper leaves; the 2nd
floor has a pair of square cross-windows. Oversailing gable
verges with simple bargeboarding. The right-hand return side,
with long through-stones, has a doorway in the centre, a small
window above and to the left, a blocked window to the right
and a taller opening blocked with brick above this (possibly a
doorway), both with slate dripbands over. The rear gable has a
large external chimney stack in the centre, with 2 slate bands
and a cornice at the top, flanked by 12-pane sashed windows at
ground floor, slightly smaller 18-pane hornless sashes with
exposed boxes at 1st floor and small 4-pane fixed windows to
the attic, all these windows with slate dripbands over.
INTERIOR: 1st floor has front room with muntin-and-rail
panelled partitioning off axis to the west, and forming its
rear wall, and mixed panelling on the east wall. Attic has 3
principal-rafter trusses, those to north and south with
collars and that in the centre with principals pegged at the
apex to a short pendent strut (or yoke) carrying a
diagonally-set ridge purlin.
