Circa 1725, encasing an earlier timber framed structure, reworked 1820 for 6th Duke of Bedford by George Maddocks, who designed new shop windows for the draper then occupying the building. Red brick. Shallow pitched slate roof with deep eaves. 3 storeys, 2 rooms deep. Symmetrical front elevation.

Shop-front takes up whole of ground floor, and is bowed (elliptical in plan). Central part-glazed double doors surmounted by rectangular fanlight with ornamental radiating glazing bars. The broad flanking windows have glazing bars of same proportions as doors, and are surmounted by ornamental glazed frieze with motif's similar to fanlight. The frieze and fanlight designs are said to incorporate symbols of the drapery trade in the form of buttonhole and herringbone stitches. C18 brick string course visible at either side of shop-front.
