Appraisal

This group together with the adjoining property to the north, 16003293, with their continuous roofline, modest size and simple form creates a pleasing edge to Fitzwilliam Square. The carved timber shopfront shows evidence of skilled craftsmanship, and adds decorative interest to an otherwise simple fa├žade.
