(268) House, No. 21, two-storeyed with attic, is of rendered brick and has a pantiled roof. This and the adjacent house to the N.W., which has a slated roof and is now part of No. 23, were built as a pair in the early 18th century. The front elevation is much altered but retains a coved plaster cornice across the whole width, and the S.W. house has two original window openings on the first floor fitted with modern sashes; each house has a gabled dormer window with Yorkshire sash. Originally the houses were only one room deep, but additions were made at the rear in the 19th century. The interiors have been virtually gutted; a lime-ash floor was removed from the N.E. house in 1974.
