Numbers 10 and 12 East Street are a pair of attractive mid 19th century shops prominently located on the East Street frontage. Their interiors contain a considerable amount of 19th century carpentry detail and the retention of these features is recommended as is that of the central chimney stack. Similarly it is advised that the shopfront be restored rather than replaced.

The blank wall to the right is wider than that to the left, the facade was not precisely symmetrical. To the left of the ground floor is a semicircular arch to a set-back door leading to the upper floors. A continuous fascia and cornice extend to the right over 2 mid 19th century shop fronts formerly flanked by pilasters with moulded caps, low sills and doors to the right of each.
