House and shop. Early C18 or earlier, altered 1801-21 and late C19. Brick
and flint, rendered on front elevation with plain tiled roof. Two storeys
and basement with parapet to hipped roof with stacks to rear. Canted bay/
oriel on first floor and canted plate glass later C19 shop front on ground
floor, with traceried basement opening below and plate glass door to right
all under cornice fascia on pilasters. The shop front mouldings show late

Remains of stair with turned newels, winder plan. C19 beaded boarded

is all that survives substantially of the farming and fishing hamlet which
occupied this site before the development of Addington Street after 1801 by
James Townley, and the adjacent Cavalry Barracks, and incorporates in the
basement remains of what may be late medieval buildings. (See Collard and
Hurst's plan of Ramsgate, 1821; see also C. Busson, Ramsgate, pp. 118.9).
