(138) House, No. 9, of three storeys, basements and attics, was built in the second quarter of the 18th century. It has single rooms at front and rear, separated by a transverse staircase. The front elevation is two bays wide, of stuccoed brickwork, with flush-framed sash windows above a modern shop front and a projecting cornice supported on brackets below a slate roof. The S. side elevation is double-gabled, with the eastern gable stuccoed and set forward. The stuccoed rear elevation, partly hidden by a single-storey brick extension with a slate roof of the second quarter of the 19th century, has a projecting string between first and second floors. Inside, the staircase has turned balusters with square knops, a swept handrail, moulded close string, and square newels with attached half-balusters. Much use is made of three-centred arches internally.
