Formerly known as: No.61 MARKET STREET. House, office, now public house. c1750, extended mid C19, restored 1994. Flemish bond brickwork front and English bond returns with grey brick decoration, tuck pointing, stucco central bay, brick gable and rear lateral stacks and a tiled hipped roof with stone slate verges. L-shaped single-depth plan with right-hand rear wing, extended. Mid Georgian style. 2 storeys, attic and basement; 5-window range. Double-fronted with plinth, second-floor band and brick eaves cornice; full-height canted rusticated ashlar bay with cornice and a plain entrance with steps up to a panelled door and panelled ceiling, with flat gauged brick arches over flanking and first-floor 4/4-pane sashes with thick bars; keyed cambered heads to 6/6-pane sashes, and 3 hipped dormers with 3/3-pane sashes. Gables in header bond with black diaper patterns. Rear wing extended in mid C19, the right-hand return having dentilled eaves and coped parapet, keyed segmental arches over sashes and blind windows. Mid C19 porch has a hipped roof. INTERIOR altered, original central stair removed, retains panelled shutters and one fireplace with eared architrave, enriched ground-floor cornice, with segmental-arched brick cellar vaults. The front bay is a most unusual feature which adds distinction to the facade: it was not shown on the original drawings and is probably a later C18 addition.
