(South Side)

TR 3358 1/184


This building forms part of the town wall, but very little remains except one
arched doorway at 1st floor level. It has been entirely rebuilt internally.
Although now virtually modern the exterior preserves the ancient character
of the walling at this point. Built of C17 warm yellow brick, flint and stone.
The roof is tiled with Dutch pantiles and some plain tiles.

The whole area of buildings or walls facing the Quay with Nos 3 and 5 Upper Strand
Street form a group.
