No. 28, of three storeys with brick walls under a pantiled roof, was called The Wellington p.h. in 1851 (OS map) and appears as such in the 1818 Directory; it was probably built not later than the second half of the 18th century.

The front elevation has been modernised and the rear elevation is largely obscured by a 19th-century extension, but has a brick dentilled cornice of headers on edge and, at the S.W. end, a round-arched opening which formerly gave access to a passageway to the street. Inside, the ground floor has been modernised and the staircase sealed off.
