cornice at first floor level (possibly former eaves cornice), rebuilt
parapet with moulded red sandstone coping (and section of moulded grey

eaves cornice and returned toothed-brick verge. Brick ridge stack just
off-centre to left and brick ridge stack to rear range. Pair of dormers
that to left gabled with 2-light leaded wooden casement and that to
right a lean-to against No. 15 (q.v.) with a single light. 4 bays.
First-floor c.1700 glazing bar sashes (with thick bars) with exposed boxes,
and painted stone cills and lintels. Ground-floor left-hand window
with late C20 top-opening casement and painted stone cill and lintel.
Late C19 canted shop- front to right with late C20 tiles to base, 1:2:1
lights with thin circular wooden mullions, and fascia above. Central
half-glazed door with mid-C19 panelled surround. Three steps up with
late C20 tiling and railings to left. Left-hand return front: 6-pane

at rear of stack with closed string, turned balusters and square newel
posts. Cl7 oak winder stair to attic. Rear wing with pair of chamfered
spine beams, one with run out stops. Old oak floorboards. Ground
floor at front not inspected. It is possible that the parapet is a
late C18 addition (see straight joint to left) and that the building
formerly had an eaves cornice with parapeted gables. The left-hand
end wall is a rebuilding of the early to the mid-C19 (see straight joist
to right). Includes No. 2 Church Street.
