Doorway recessed to right contains bottom-panelled glazed door with plain overlight. 2-bay shop front without glazing bars to right. Fascia flanked by shaped brackets featuring carved wheatsheaves (presumably it was a bakery). Windows above are horned 4-pane sashes, smaller on the second floor than the first. Plain eaves.
