Built as a shop with accommodation above, c.1880, but possibly incorporating an earlier structure.


Roughcast render with smooth rendered dressings and hipped slate roof. 2 storeys and attic; 3-window range. 2-storeyed canted bay window to the right, then doorway to house (a 3-panelled door with overlight), and shop-front to the right.

Modillion eaves cornice. Gabled dormers, each with a 4-pane sash window, and pierced projecting bargeboards
