No. 36, was built in 1796–8 (Deeds; YCA, E95, ff. 206, 207, 225) partly over a carriageway to which the earlier arched entrance still remains. The owner was then Thomas Tate.

The house is of three storeys and, except for the carriage entrance, is symmetrical. The central doorway is recessed under a plain gauged brick semicircular arch; over the doorway are plain hung-sash windows but the windows to each side of the elevation are of three unequal lights and there are similar three-light windows at the back all under gauged brick flat arches. At ground floor the plan is that of a simple terrace house with staircase placed transversely between front and back rooms; on each of the upper floors there is an additional room over the carriageway. On the first floor is a fireplace surround enriched with rosettes and festoons modelled in plastic composition.
