Appraisal

A well proportioned imposing building situated in the town centre. Fine examples of timber sliding sash windows are retained, as well as a finely crafted shopfront. These enliven the facade and give it an appealing character. The original form and appearance of the building is retained ensuring that it makes a positive contribution to the streetscape.
