INTERIOR: no original features remaining (2003).
Displays earlier 19th century fabric similar to No 10 High Street (see separate listing) and was probably built at the same time as its neighbour. Since the original date of listing (1985), the earlier timber sash and case glazing to the 1st floor and dormer windows have been removed. Nevertheless, this building still displays an attractive, although partially concealed, Edwardian shop front and contributes to the Outstanding Conservation Area streetscape.
