No 26 is a house and shop, No 27 shop only. RCHM 104. Probably C15, altered
in C17 and C19. 3 storeyed timber-framed front with a Welsh slate roof and
an overhang which is now concealed by modern shop fronts. The facades have
been variously altered. No 26 retains its gable but has been recently (1949)
much rebuilt internally; it has a modern 3-light sash window in the 1st and
2nd floors. No 27 has shop fronts of plate glass in both the upper floors
with a wood frame and a pediment; a parapet above conceals a hipped roof.
Interior. At the back, extending to the Ship Street front, is a pointed
stone arch, probably an original doorway.
