Nos. 19, 21, were built probably c. 1812, the date on a rainwater head. The houses are of three storeys, each with two front rooms to each floor, behind which the planning is very irregular, and a variety of projections containing back rooms, staircases and closets. The front door to No. 19 is recessed behind panelled reveals and has six moulded and fielded panels. One of the first-floor fireplaces has the sides enriched with composition decoration.
