Sandstone, timber frame with plaster panels; roof of small green slates. EXTERIOR: undercroft, now cellar, and 3 storeys. The Row storey 2 steps above pavement level has a timber archway on jowled posts. Brackets carry the jettied second storey which has a moulded beam below a row of ornate panels under a full-width window of 3 casements, each with 2 shaped mullions, 2 transoms, leaded glazing and carved pilasters to corners and between casements carrying 4 brackets to support the moulded third storey jetty-beam. The third storey has a 6-light mullioned casement, ornate plaster panels and 4 colonnettes beneath tall shaped brackets to the coved jetty of the front gable which has quatrefoil panels in diagonal framing; bargeboards. The rear is of no special interest. INTERIOR: the long narrow cellar undercroft of sandstone is largely medieval, but may have Roman, or reused Roman, stones immediately above the bedrock at the east end of the north wall. The surfaces of the Row and second and third storeys, are largely covered and no feature of special historic interest is visible. Nos 5-31 (odd) are collectively known as `Saddler's Row' and were previously listed as Row numbers.
