History

Early C19 house and shop retaining its original unhorned sashes to all floors. The ground floor arrangement, with large sashes flanking a central shop entrance, and further entrance to the R, giving access to the accommodation above, appears to be essentially unaltered.

Exterior

Three-storey late Georgian house and shop. Of local rubble construction with slate roof and end chimneys with plain cornicing. The ground floor openings are not aligned with the upper floor windows. Central entrance with small-pane glazed, modern door and original 4-pane, narrow rectangular overlight. Large flanking 16-pane sash windows, with 12-pane sashes to the first floor, and 9-pane sashes to the second, the latter under the eaves; projecting stone sills and rough-dressed stone lintels throughout.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of survey.
