Houses and Shops, Nos. 59, 61, of two storeys and attics, were built in the second quarter of the 18th century as a pair, each with a single room to front and rear and central transverse staircase. The front elevation, of brick in Flemish bond, is three bays wide with a central blind window on the first floor; it has a modernised late 19th-century shop front, modillioned cornice with dated rainwater head ES 1763, and a pantiled roof with two gabled dormers, one of which is original. The rear elevation has a double gable and the window and door openings had arched heads, though they have all been altered to some extent. Inside, virtually no original fittings survive except part of the staircase of No. 61 which has close strings and turned balusters with square knops.
