clad in colourwashed render over wooden ground floor, renewed plain tiled roof. Two
storeys, two framed bays with parapet and 3 velux roof lights. Stack to right. Two
12-pane glazing-bar sash windows in architrave surrounds on the first floor, C2O

Interior:- roof timbers originally sooted, original structure more complete to right
half. Crown-post to right with centre purlin missing and with it the strut from the
centre crown-post to the purlin. Crown-post missing to left end. Internal evidence

originated as two individual shop units.
