History

Possibly C18 in origin, but rebuilt as a pair of shops by the Vaynor Estate c1850 (an architect's drawing showing alterations to the property which was then a saddlers and drapers shop is dated 1854).

These have battened plank doors beneath timber canopies supported on ornate wrought iron brackets. Blind segmentally arched panel above the doors. Shop window (inserted) in left hand bay, with entrance to shop alongside it to the left. Projecting C19 small-paned bay window of shop in gable end return. Upper windows unsympathetically renewed in original openings. Right hand section has central entrance with battened plank doorway with canopy hood flanked by 12-pane sash window to the left, and 2-pane rectangular shop window with entablature to the right. 2 12-pane sash windows to first floor. Windows throughout all have the chamfered cases characteristic of the Vaynor Estate.
