An early origin, remodelled in early C19. Old photos show building as F Nelmes Grocery both with earlier C19 shopfront and the high quality 1920s shopfront removed in 2003.

Exterior

Town-house with Georgian frontage and remains of later shopfront, attached at each side. Rendered, scored and painted with half-hipped slate roof incorporating a small gabled dormer; centre cross-ridge brick stack. The roof is not continuous between the two units. Two storeys and attic. An uneven arrangement of windows reflecting earlier building history. First floor has a 16-pane horned sash to right and a canted bay with 12 and 8-pane sashes to left, the top continuous with eaves. Ground floor has doorway with classical doorcase, fluted pilasters, pediment hood and 6-panelled door with overlight at right end, tripartite sash window. At left remains of a projecting shopfront removed to form vehicle entrance in 2003. Railings with blunted arrow and urn finials extend across the house frontage.
