Range of houses, Nos. 13–23 (odd), of two storeys and attics in brick, has a dated rainwater head of 1766. It consists of two 18th-century buildings with a common cornice of dentils and brackets of late 18th or early 19th-century date. On the ground floor are six shops, with modern fronts in a late 18th-century style. There is a straight joint in the brickwork of the upper floor between the two properties.
