Elaborate 3-light bows to the gable: tall lancets on the ground floor have 3/2-pane sashes with margin panes, separated by colonnettes with moulded capitals and draped female figures supporting the second-floor bowed oriel. This has a moulded base, French windows separated by panelled mullions with gableted tops, paired to the sides. Third floor as the ground, with 5-pane windows, hoodmoulds and colonnettes with draped male figures to the coved eaves, with wrought-iron railings of pointed arches to the balcony in front.

SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached squared rubble wall extends approx 8m to the right with railings on top the same as the balcony. HISTORICAL NOTE: built over caves of supposedly Christian significance, hence the symbolic decoration. (Gomme A, Jenner M and Little B: Bristol, An Architectural History: Bristol: 1979-: 285).
