No 9 is 1-window and roughcast. Entrance to L with moulded wooden doorcase with triangular pediment on brackets (there were originally columns), containing a C20 half-glazed panelled door under an overlight. Renewed small-pane tripartite horned sashes to each storey. In front of the ground floor window, low plain iron railings on a stone plinth, possibly marking position of a bayed shop window, removed by the 1970s. Under through-passage to R side, C20 half-glazed wooden door, entrance to No 9. To rear, long brick rear wing in 2 sections, that to N lower. Rendered to W side and N gable end.
