Appraisal

This modest building retains much of its early form and fabric. It is enlivened by subtle red brick detailing including a moulded cornice, pilasters and a panelled riser to the shopfront. The blank screen wall adjoining the south elevation, evidently retained from an earlier building, provides decorative interest as well as functioning as an enclosing boundary wall to an associated yard.
