No.7 has been altered, retaining two lights of tripartite sash, third blocked, and new light inserted to left, also at first floor centre light has been dropped, with small balconette, and extra light inserted to left.

No.5 has a triple `oriel' with small-pane transom lights to common fascia with cornice (1882, altered, by C Wibley, Builder on the Burton Street side, c1800 with later windows on south end, and 1869, altered on Old Bond Street side). No.6 paired front with recessed central door, to fascia and cornice (mid/late C19 on Old Bond Street side and late C19 with later windows on Burton Street side). Nos 7 and 8 have good undulating bow fronts with shallow entablatures, with plain glazing and centre door with transom light, but in twenty panes each side of central door to No.8, also has further door to left (No.7 early C19, altered early C20 on Old Bond street side. And 1907 by Speckam and Son on Burton Street. No.8 early C19). Nos 9 and ten have late C20 plate glass fronts (1967, by Rolfe and Crozier-Cole), returned at south end. Severe detail with cornice, blocking course and parapet, and small square eaves stack between Nos 6 and 7. North end, facing Milsom Street, has small niche with putti on plinth at first floor above C19 pilaster shopfront with recessed door, right, and modillion cornice, blocking course swept down at centre to fine carved Royal Arms with supporters. South end has clockface above twelve pane sash, and front to Old Bond Street has seven twelve pane and smaller light above five twelve pane, three of these with balconettes, plain paired sash, and two deep fifteen pane, all above various shopfronts. Above ground floor platband, with BOND STREET incised, and small cove cornice. Three ashlar stacks at centre.
INTERIORS: Not inspected.
HISTORY: This narrow block stood close to the former wide market space, possibly on the sit of earlier buildings, just outside the mediaeval wall. It forms a very shallow, but prominent, range. The masonry fronts display evidence of straight jointing, suggesting that the construction may not have been carried out in one stage.
