Late C18 or early and first shown on the 1810 town plan. Nos 5 and 6 Castle Square were originally a single property and are shown as such on the 1834 and 1852 town plans, but its present sudivision occurred in the third quarter of the C19 when the building was adapted to commercial use, and is shown on the 1888 Ordnance Survey. The present frontages date from the time of subdivision. In 1895 No 6 was a tailor's shop.
