Listing Text

(West Side)
Nos 29 & 30
TL1828 NW 2/45 13.4.51.


Circa 1700. 3 storey brick building which echoes much of the character
of The Sun immediately opposite (No 4, above), but without the same amount
of detail. Blue brick dressed with red, similar moulded and recessed
eaves, half-hipped slate roof with two square dormers. 7 windows in broad
flush frames, the central window on the first floor has an unusual shaped
edge to its arch, featuring three fleur-de-lys in addition to the more
normal alternating curves. C19 and modern shop windows.

Nos 13 to 34 (consec) form a group.
