House and Shop, No. 3, built c. 1800, is of three storeys over a cellar. The cellar and the second floor are now only accessible from No. 4. In the party wall between Nos. 3 and 4 are the remains of a roof of a house earlier than either of the present buildings.
House, No. 4, was built in the early 18th-century and heightened c. 1800 to give attic accommodation and to match the height of No. 3 adjoining. It is of three storeys and attics. The ground floor has been gutted for a modern shop. The first floor has one room occupying the full width of the three-bay front and a second room and staircase behind. The staircase has a heavy close string and widely-spaced turned balusters (Fig. 11j). The roof is constructed in two parallel spans.
