This building was formerly known as Herring House. Heron is presumably a corruption of herring as this house was used for smoking and storing fish. The ground floor fenestration was altered and small square windows at the first floor were blocked during first half of 20th century. Breaking-eaves dormers were later added in late 1960s or early 1970s. This house forms part of 18th century arrangement of single and multi-storey dwellings forming a large U-plan from No 4 Post Office Lane to No 1 Helen Place (formerly known as Chapel Place).
