Shop front has 2 display windows, canted towards a central glazed shop door with solid moulded panel at the bottom; coloured tiles in front of door with panelled wooden ceiling above.

House-part not inspected, except for wooden staircase with thin square-section balusters; compartment has coloured floor-tiles, apparently extending into entrance-passage. The house has a long association with harness-making. Walter Chope, saddler and harness-maker, was here in 1883; by 1901 he had been succeeded by Sidney R Chope. The owner of the present firm of saddlers, WT Johns, says that shop front was installed in 1907. (Kelly's Directory of Devonshire: 1883-: 52; Kelly's Directory of Devonshire: 1901-: 9).
