House, No. 33, of three storeys and attics, was built in the early 18th century, but refronted in the 19th century and subsequently much altered internally. The plan probably consisted of rooms to the front and rear of a transverse staircase, with a projecting closet block at the back. The N.E. front elevation is two bays wide above a modern shop front, stuccoed with simulated stone joints, and with hung-sash windows in recessed frames and a simple eaves cornice. The rear elevation, also stuccoed, is gabled, and there are stringcourses between each floor. Few original internal fittings remain. The N.W. party wall in the attic incorporates reused timbers.
