Brown brick in Flemish bond; roof at right-angle to the street re-covered in probably cement tiles. EXTERIOR: 4 storeys including undercroft and Row levels.

The third and fourth storeys have 2 recessed sashes to each, with painted stone sillbands and heads expressed as wedge lintels, of 12 panes to the third storey and 9 panes to the fourth storey. Lead rainwater pipe and head, the top bracket dated 1811; painted stone cornice; 3 chimneys on north wall. The late C19 cottage adjoining the rear forms part of the property but has no visible external features of special interest. INTERIOR: the medieval undercroft, tapering on plan, is the longest identified in the Rows at 40.85m. Walls are, where visible, of coursed rubble sandstone and later brickwork, plastered in part; 5 chamfered oak beams not closely datable and 2 altered beams; behind the 4-storey portion is an inserted concrete flat roof on the medieval walls, behind which the sandstone side walls continue, barrel-vaulted in brick C18, to the sandstone rear wall. The Row storey has an open-well open-string stair to the third and fourth storeys with shaped brackets, stick balusters and swept rail; early C19 cast-iron grates; a C19 leaded rear window. The third and fourth storeys have early C19 cast-iron grates. The rear portion, probably formerly a separate
