History

Terraced house, now solicitors' office, former Horse and Jockey Inn. Externally earlier to mid C19 but of early C18 origins. Marked as inn on 1834 map, shop by later C19, Eliza Williams shopkeeper in 1884 and Sarah Davies in 1914. Offices of Hopwood Collen solicitors in 2002. The interior plank panelling of late C17 type is probably early C18, and a rare survival.

Exterior

Terraced house, low 2 storeys with cellar, slate low-pitched roof. Painted stucco front with 2 16-pane sash windows (renewed since 1981) on first floor. Ground floor late C19 to early C20 shop front to centre and left with cornice with small modillions, on pilasters with large console brackets. Plate-glass shop-window to left, canted pane in to recessed half-glazed panelled door with overlight to right. To extreme right, not aligned with window above, another 12-pane sash.

Interior

Interior has 3 roughly chamfered ground floor ceiling beams with rough run-out stops, and painted plank panelling (in-and-out overlaid boards) mortised into ceiling beam on S side of former entrance passage and lining staircase wall. Staircase possibly C18, enclosed bottom flight, small closet at top of stairs with 2-panel door (as formerly in 23 Bridge Street and 13 Spilman Street); 2 fielded panelled doors.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a late Georgian building with late C17 to early C18 interior including in-and-out plank partition, beams, staircase and other features. A relatively early survival in Carmarthen, and rare in the retention of early interior detail.
