History

Built probably in the first half of the C18 and heightened from one-and-a-half storeys to its present three in c1840. A traditional building thought to have belonged to the old farm on The Cathedral Green which was demolished in the early C19. The heightening and conversion to commercial use would have come after this.

Exterior

The building is constructed with thick stone rubble walls, externally colour washed over rendering; Welsh slate gabled roof. The present building is of three storeys (originally of two storeys with loft above). Three bays, with a later two storey lean-to of one bay at south-west end. The street elevation has 2-light casement windows on the first and second floors, one at either end on second floor, three on first floor; 3 3 pane casements on the first floor, 4 4 on the second. The ground floor has a sash window with glazing bars and horns to left hand, 4 over 4 panes, centre doorway with flat dripstone and at the right hand end a shop window with 3 panes over 2, with the part glazed door to right of it. Low pitch roof, with a chimney surviving only on the right gable. The left extension has a similar door with a replacement window above. Rear elevation not seen.

Interior

The interior, which preserves its original plan, has stone fireplaces at each end on the ground and first floors and a flanking stone staircase, The interior was not seen at resurvey and the details are from the 1975 listing description.
