Houses, Nos. 13, 14 (Fig. 69), were built c. 1725 as a single three-storey structure, five bays wide. Each house is L-shaped on plan, the re-entrant angle at the back of No. 14 being occupied by the end of the earlier part of No. 15. The ground floor of Nos. 13, 14 has been converted to shops and a modern single-storey building stands between the two back wings.

The front elevation is built of red brick with a plat-band above the first-floor windows. Below the eaves, fixings remain for a large timber cornice, now removed. On plan each house has one front room and in the back wing a staircase and a smaller room beyond. Above first-floor level both the original staircases survive; they are identical, with close strings, square newels, and turned balusters.
