Pair of small houses, circa 1830-40. Plastered stone rubble, lightly blocked out as ashlar to front; end stacks with plastered and exposed brick chimneyshafts and old pots; slate roof. Plan: Mirror plan, each unit one room wide and 2 rooms deep. Exterior: 2 storeys and attic; symmetrical 3-window front. Outer window bays recessed between full-height pilasters and central bay which contains paired doorways (both now containing recessed 20th century doors) under blind windows. Outer windows are 12-pane sashes. 2 gabled dormers are probably 19th century but have new bargeboards and windows. Interior not inspected but likely to be of interest. The houses of Charles Street, which comprise a good group of artisan housing, enclose the west side of the Market Square. The whole area was developed in the 1820s and 1830s on land reclaimed from the old tidal mill pool.
