A building is shown on this site in 1823. In a photograph taken in the later 1880s by AR Edwards (NMRS), the building is shown to have no dormers. Until recent years, there were buildings linking this with
No 42 Market Place, a fragment of which remains. However, these were demolished to give access to the car park to S.
