carriage entry beneath a three-centred arch at the right-hand side. Later shop front
with central recessed door. Sash windows to upper floors with flat, rubbed brick arches
to the openings. Paired cornice brackets. Extending beneath the entire length of the
building is a brick built undercroft which has been partly destroyed by the C18
rebuilding. To the rear, at the east end, is a side chamber with a pointed barrel-vault
profile and opposite is the remains of the corner vaulting pier. On the front wall is an
arch representing either wall arcading or another side chamber formerly extending beneath
