Mansard slate roof with rendered chimneystack, render eaves course and timber bargeboards to dormer. Rendered walls. Square-headed opening to dormer having replacement uPVC windows.

Appraisal

Built as part of a pair, this building retains interesting features and materials, such as the timber shopfront, polychrome tiling and fixed display windows. These simple though well-executed shopfront features are becoming increasingly threatened by more elaborate modern pastiche replacements.
