25 and 26, Mill Street.
House with shops. Probably early 18th century, remodelled mid 19th century. Solid rendered walls (a small patch of red brick exposed). Steeply-pitched slate roof. Red-brick chimney on each gable-end. Altered single-depth plan, with short rear wing, containing staircase and one further room, to right. 3 storeys; 2-window range. Wide mid 19th century shop front with pilasters; entablature with prominent bracketed cornice; centre doorway flanked by display windows, the right hand window was probably designed originally to be open to the street.
Upper-storey windows have shaped cement surrounds; those in second storey are the wider with paired sashes having margin-panes; those in third storey have 8-paned sashes. The side-wall to Hart Street has house-doors. 2 single-light windows matching those at the front; sashes with margin-panes. Raised quoins to the right.

Interior much altered: original wood dog-leg stair; square with flat moulded cap at the bottom, possibly balusters boarded in. Feet of probably old roof-trusses visible.
