half-timbered gables and scrolled finial; tall rear red brick
2-storey octagonal building. On the corner angle are C20

(signs of where a wooden porch has been removed). Each face
has paired sash windows on 2 levels, except where joined to
other buildings, partly with glazing bars and some C19

Unified to the terrace housing on North Street (not included)
by a single-bay link. GR wall post box is set into one of the
faces. Carlisle Journal (1882), states that the building
opened in January of that year; original building plans are in
