House, No. 17, now a shop, was built in the second quarter of the 18th century, of brick, with two storeys, basement and attics. The interior was substantially refitted c. 1840 and the street elevation rebuilt when the front part was heightened to three storeys later in the 19th century. The staircase, adjacent to the rear room, incorporates original balusters with fluted columns over complex bases on treads with shaped, carved ends. Much of the original roof structure, of kerb-principal trusses, survives.
