Full Description

(256) House, No. 2, of three storeys with cellars and attics, has walls of brick in Flemish bond, and slated roofs. It is probably the house built between 1804 and 1823 by John Thompson (Chester Record Office, EEB 9448).

On the front to the street are twin arched entrances, one for a passage leading direct to a rear yard, the other to the house doorway, which is deeply recessed and has panelled reveals. The first and second floors each have two original sash windows in flush frames. The interior is mostly original, but the single ground-floor room has been opened out towards the N.W. and incorporated into the modern restaurant adjoining. The upper floors each have two rooms at the front; the staircase, which is placed behind, is top-lit because of a building immediately to the rear, and has square balusters.
