History

Altered range, possibly a former service range to No 31, marked on 1834 map, now externally C19 and later. In 1914 a solicitor's office, in 2002 Merlin Construction Ltd.
Quay Street is the most complete street of C18 houses left in Carmarthen, the street formed in the early C12 and already by the late middle ages the street of Carmarthen's most prominent families. No 19, which has been demolished, was dated 1698. It is not yet possible to establish precise dates for the other houses but most of them seem to be of C18 date, some retaining panelling and staircases of the period.

Exterior

Building in terraced row, now offices, unpainted C20 roughcast, slate roof, with red brick stack to right. Two-storey, 2-window range, considerably lower than No 31 but similar height to No 33. Upper floor with two sash windows with 6 panes in upper halves only, to left and right of centre. Ground floor with 2 similar windows aligned each to left of window above. Round-headed archway to through passage to Bull Lane at right. Door at extreme left, 4-panel with deep plain overlight.
