House, No. 23, three-storeyed and doublefronted, was built c. 1700. The street front is five bays wide, with a Victorian shop front, and has flat brick arches over the windows. At the back, the windows, where original, have boldly segmental arches. The original staircase, between two back rooms, has a heavy moulded string, square newel with turned pendants below, and bulbous balusters.

All the fireplaces have been blocked and the surrounds removed in conversion of the premises into offices.
