House, No. 39, of three storeys, was built in 1794 by William Walker and at that time formed with No. 37 a symmetrical pair (Deeds). The semicircular arch over the entrance and flat arches over the front windows are of gauged rubbed brick. The house repeats the plan of the earlier part of No. 37; in both houses there are large cupboards between the staircases and the party wall.
