History

Early C19 house, smaller than No 6 or Ashley Court, the former Cobourg Hotel, which adjoin each side. Oriel windows are similar to those on Nos 5 and 6, probably added in later C19. Recorded in 1851 and 1867 as occupied by W Walkington, chemist and mayor of Tenby; in 1881 by G James, chemist; in 1891 by N & F Crockford, circulating library; in 1896 by H C Oldfield, newsagent; in 1901 by F Billing stationer; in 1911 and 1921 by Atkins & Coomb, confectioners; in 1923 and 1926 W G Gwatkin, draper and milliner, and from the 1930s by W H Smith, newsagents. Old photograph of c1912 shows different shopfront.

House now commercial premises. Painted stucco with slate mansard roof behind parapet. Three storeys and attic, one-window range. One flat dormer. Canted oriel window with 8-12-8-paned horned sash windows on both first and second floors, with moulded cornices. Mid C20 W H Smith & Son shop front on ground floor, recessed with row of top lights over late C20 glazing and doors. Fascia with blind box between small brackets.
