The ground floor survived until later C20 being described in 1953 as having original doorway with architrave and keystone, Corinthian pilasters, enriched frieze and broken pediment with pineapple. There were flanking shop windows, all replaced by C20 plate glass with inset doors. Occupied by the Co-operative Stores in later C20.
