Full Description

House, now shops and flat. c1770 with early C19 and C20 alterations. Brick, mostly in Flemish bond, with pantiled roof.

EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 4 bays. The first floor windows have rubbed brick flat arches and are sashed without glazing bars. On the ground floor the left-hand bay has a tripartite sash without glazing bars; this is a late C20 insertion. The 2 right-hand bays have an early C20 shopfront with a recessed doorway. In the 2nd bay there is a panelled timber pilaster doorcase with fanlight and open dentilled pediment. Above the pediment is the flat brick arch of a blocked opening, suggesting that the doorcase is not original. The timber gutter cornice is bracketed and dentilled. At the left there is a downpipe with a fluted lead hopper head. The left-hand gable is coped. Chimneys at right and behind ridge.
