Historic Environment Record entry

An interesting post-war building that blends in well with its much older neighbours. It retains most of its original exterior features and character.

Mid terrace, three-storey, three-bay. Front elevation: slate roof with over-sailing eaves, unusually good quality rainwater ware and a dormer with multi-paned casement windows. Painted plain render finish, with vertical louvre moulding to the large central protruding bay. The windows are a mix of large fixed-paned units with multi-paned overlights, and multi-paned casements. A pair of doors at street level are multi-paned matching the windows, all are in timber.
