A terrace of the third quarter of the late 19th Century with shops on the ground floor and 2-storeys above. Each house is one window of coupled sashes wide; the end houses have canted angles and 3 single windows on the return. The terrace is of pale pink terracotta brick with terracotta dressings.

On the ground floor the shopfronts are framed by piers with corbel blocks above.

The piers take the form of high plinths carrying Corinthian columns with helical- twist dadoes. The door of each end shop is set in the canted angle where piers frame it and support the fascia.

The lines of the piers continue through the upper storeys to the modillions of the eaves cornice in the form of vermiculated quoin blocks. On the first floor they flank round-headed sashes within arches springing from a central pier and side piers. The keystones rise to a continuous cornice and blocking course.

On the second floor the quoin blocks flank sashes in architraves having cambered heads above a central pier and side piers.

The returns have windows which are single versions of those described above.

The stacks, several of them altered, rise to terracotta cornices. No 81, Chemist's shop with panelled stallrisers and glass fascias with gilt lettering to front, splay and return. Interior with glass display counter and mirror-backed display cabinet, gilt and painted glass panel inscribed 'Prescriptions Prepared' and 3 chemist's display flagons.
