Number 1 Chapel Street is a 2-room early or mid 17th century rear range to right, originally extending into part of number 2. Latter is the remains of a range formerly extending further west; it now incorporates a one-room cottage fronting Union Street on the south, possibly a former detached rear block of 6 Allhalland Street. Two storeys; 3-window range. Two late 19th century shop-fronts, that to number 6 with slender columns supporting shallow segmental arches; entablatures with consoles supporting each end of cornice.

Twentieth century wood casements to number 6, small-paned sashes with thick glazing-bars (possibly original) to number 7: 8 over 8 panes plus radial window-head bars in centre light, 4 over 4 panes in outer lights. Between the Venetian windows a blind segmental-headed window with keystone. Whole front flanked by horizontally-channelled pilaster-strips. Boxed eaves cornice. Number 6 has 2 and 4-paned sashes in side-wall facing Union Street; 2-paned sashes in rear wall of 19th century addition. Number 1 Chapel Street has 6 and 8-paned sashes in ground storey plus a later sash-window with margin-panes. Small-paned wood casements in upper storey; also in both storeys at number 2.
