Pevsner describes it as "lacklustre" and ascribes this to the retirement of Edward Walters from the designers Walters, Barker & Ellis. Built c1868. "The interest is in the use of stone facing instead of brick and the introduction of Continental Gothic motifs, with ranks of grouped windows and variation in the form taken by the window heads." Over the next few decades countless buildings across the country would employ similar motifs.
Still shops at street level, offices above. The red brick round the corner looks modern.
