History

The building is probably early C19 and one of the buildings shown on Bridge Street on the 1834 town plan, but the present front is a remodelling of the third quarter of the C19. In 1895 it was occupied by a bookseller and printer.

Exterior

A shop with dwelling above of 2½ storeys with a 2-window front in free classical style. The front is roughcast with stressed quoin strips (partly missing), and a slate roof is on bracketed eaves, with shared brick stack to the R. The original shop front is removed but its fascia survives partly behind a later C20 shop front. The upper storey has a sill band, eared and lugged architraves with keystones to 4-pane horned sashes. Below the attic storey windows is a blank inscription band. Two round-headed half dormers have 4-pane horned sash windows under pronounced keyed moulded heads, which have urn finials to the keystones.

The rear retains 4-pane sashes and has a basement storey where the ground falls sharply.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a commercial building retaining good original detail above ground-floor level, and for its contribution to the distinctive late C19 commercial character of Bangor Street, Bridge Street and Eastgate Street.
