Two modern shopfronts to the ground floor.

Appraisal

This former pair of houses makes a positive addition to the streetscape, due to the form and scale of the building. The building retains many interesting features and details, such as the ridge cresting, finials, timber sash windows and timber panelled door. The oriel windows are particularly notable features of the building, as they are not found elsewhere in the village.
