History

Probably early C19 house and former Post Office, marked as an L-shaped plan on the tithe map of the parish, 1841; owned and occupied by Thomas Richard. The shop front appears to have been remodelled in later C19.

Exterior

Early C19 house and former Post Office built to an L-shaped plan and with the rear wing built up a slight incline. Built of coursed rubble masonry and faced with dressed, coursed stonework. Slate close-eaved roof with broad, rectangular stone stacks with dripstones and capping. The prinicipal range and shop front faces the road to W, a 3-storey 3-window range with 1st and 2nd floor horned sash windows with slate sills; first floor windows have 16-panes and 2nd floor windows unequal sashes of 12-panes. The shop has a central, half glazed doorway with flanking canted bay windows of 2-pane horned sash windows with glazing bars.
The L (N) gable return and rear wing have ground and first floor small-paned, horned, sash windows; those to far end of the rear wing smaller and set at a higher level.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of the survey.
