A two-phase house, late 18th century in origin with circa late 1860s alterations. The original house was two storeys and basement only, and was one build with No 9, adjoining at the right (south-east). The dimensions of the original build are evident from examination of the rear wall, where there is no joint between the 18th century hand-made brickwork of Nos 8 and 9. See report for full details.
