Shops with club premises above. Probably mid C19 with late C19 shop built out at the front of ground storey. MATERIALS: solid rendered front; left side wall is of stone rubble with remnants of plaster adhering to it. Rear wall (visible from Meridian Place) is covered with roughcast in top storey; lower part blocked by adjoining structure. Roof slated, probably with asbestos slate. Rendered, multi-flue chimney on right-hand side wall. PLAN: Probably a double-fronted, double-depth plan originally, although the first floor plan has been considerably altered and now takes in the first floor of No.132 High Street (qv). Narrow, open well staircase at rear of centre. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys with garret. Upper storeys have single light window or glazed door to left and square, 4-light bay window to right. Shopfront in ground storey has 4 cast-iron columns with enriched capitals, these supporting an entablature which breaks forward above each column. Upon the entablature stands a wrought-iron balcony-railing in Rococo style, probably of late C19 date. 2 display windows flank the club entrance. Only the left-hand one retains much of its original character, the lower section being divided into 2 panes by a thick, vertical glazing bar. To its right is the glazed shop door with bracketed cornice above, the brackets linked by small cinquefoiled arches. Above both window and door runs a dentilled cornice surmounted by a 3-paned transom light. In the upper storeys the bay window has 9-paned sashes in the second storey and 6-paned sashes in the third storey (all with horns), the second storey finished with a moulded cornice. To left of second storey is a glazed 12-paned door with 3-paned transom light. The window above it is a 6-paned sash without horns. Front is finished with an eaves board moulded on the lower edge. 3 gabled dormers with 2-paned sashes and plain bargeboards. Rear wall has in top storey a 4-paned sash to right (east) and 8-paned fixed sash in centre. INTERIOR only partly inspected.
