Coursed stugged sandstone, painted white to principal (N) elevation; harled to E elevation (No 58); ashlar dressings.

INTERIORS: not inspected (1999).

Statement of Interest

Nos 60-62 are slightly more intact with earlier type of architrave to windows. Steeply pitched roofs and wide spacing of openings indicate an early date.
