A pair of mid C19 shops with houses above, in a range of 3 storeys grouped 2 3 bays, of whitened scribed roughcast, rusticated rock-faced quoins painted black, and slate roof on projecting dentil eaves. A whitened scribed roughcast stack is to the R, white roughcast stack L of centre, and grey roughcast stack to the L end. The lower storey has shop fronts. Above, the windows have similar black-painted keyed architraves, with cornices on consoles in the middle storey, and sill bands.
Shop window of 2 3 lights between recessed half-glazed panel door and overlight. The windows have colonnettes to arched brackets, and a dentil frieze below the painted fascia, which has fielded end panels on consoles. Above the shop are 12-pane sash windows, shorter in the upper storey, and which, in the central bay, are incorporated in a 2-storey canted oriel window.
The rear is whitened render. It has a lower gabled projection on the R side with small-pane sash window. Windows are otherwise altered and an escape stair has been added upper L. The roof has 2 skylights.
Modernised but retains a full-height open-well stair which has turned balusters and moulded tread ends.
Listed for its special architectural interest as one of a pair of shops and accommodation retaining definite C19 character, and for its group value within the historical townscape.
