(86) House, No. 18, of three storeys, was built in the early 18th century. In 1852 it was the Rectory of St. Mary's. The ground floor has been gutted and refronted to form a commercial office; above, the front has been painted white and the interior rearranged.
The three-bay front elevation has a plat-band at the second floor and a cornice at the wall-head. The windows have stone architraves and the middle one on the first floor is surmounted by a pediment and linked to that above by a slight projection which interrupts the band. The reset staircase from first to second floor has close strings, square newels and turned balusters of a different design on each of the two flights. The original plan provided for front and back rooms with the staircase placed transversely between them and lit by a window in the side wall.
