The second storey has shaped plaster panels beneath 2 canted oriels of 5 lights to each shop, with shaped mullions and moulded transoms, each on 4 brackets divided by carved panels; leaded glazing with shaped panes; ogee heads to lights surmounted by richly-carved panels. a niche between the two oriels of each shop contains a carved figure: Justitia on No.5, St Crispin on No.7 and unidentified on No.9. Carved bressumers on shaped brackets carry the 3 jettied gables which have shaped panels, carved bargeboards and ornate finials, that to No.9 damaged. The rears are concealed. INTERIORS: Nos 5 & 7 have cellars with no features of interest in succession to former undercrofts; No.9 has brickwork of a partly medieval undercroft.
