Bank, formerly a house, standing at one end of a long curved row which once formed the western edge of the medieval livestock market. Circa 1780s. Brick, with double hipped slate roof concealed behind parapet. Main block faces street, with wing to rear. Internal end stacks, all brick, three storeys.
Front: three bays, symmetrical; the outer bays with bowed window bays extending from ground to parapet base. These were probably added in the early 19th century and are of Flemish bond along with the extreme left-hand section of the front; the rest of the front is of an unusual variant of Flemish bond, each course comprising two headers between each stretcher. First and second floor bow windows are hornless tripartite sashes; ground floor with 20th century 20-pane barred windows. Middle bay with hornless sashes to first and second floors. Central doorway with broken pediment, Tuscan columns (almost detached) fielded panel reveals and soffit to semi-circular-headed door with barred fanlight; three steps with 20th century railings. Right-hand elevation with no windows, and one blocked door.
Rear: two tripartite hornless sash windows, to second and first floors with crown glass, the former with 1 pane up and 2 below to side lights, 3 up and 6 down to centre, the latter with 4-pane sashes to side and 12 to centre; another second floor sash with 3 panes up, 6 down, with a little metal sill railing; semi-circular headed stairwell window with intersecting glazing bars to 12-pane sash (that appears to have been subsequently lengthened by nine panes). Wing: three-light casement window to second floor, 15 leaded panes per light, with ring catch; two-light casement window to first floor 18 leaded panes per light; four-light casement window to ground floor, 12 leaded panes per light, and with big floriated catch. Four-light casement window to end elevation, 18 leaded panes per light. Interior not inspected.
