Later C19 former shop in building perhaps of earlier C19, contemporary with Raglan House (the Post Office) to left.

It sold flour, corn, seed, beer and porter, though the iron rail with hooks at the front of the present shop suggests a butcher's premises.

This has corniced fascia over a 5-panel door with narrow overlight, to left of large sliding sash shop window of 6 panes. Iron rail with hooks on fascia.
To the rear a painted brick rear wing with first floor tripartite sash of 4-12-4 panes links to a late C19 red brick 2-storey storehouse with slate roof.
