House, No. 39, of three storeys and with a long range at the rear, was built in the mid 18th century and modified in the 19th and 20th centuries. The three-bay front elevation, of mottled brick with darker brick dressings, has a 19th-century pilastered shop front to the ground floor. The windows on both upper floors originally had continuous stone sill-bands and plain flat stone hoods, but the middle window on the second floor has been heightened. Inside, in a cupboard in the S. corner of the second-floor front room, is visible the outside face of the N.E. wall of the formerly timber-framed No. 41 (q.v.).
