No.40 Chapel Street, (South side)
Small house, attached to the former Golden Lion Inn (Nos 38 and 39). Disused at time of survey (1992). Probably originally a staff cottage, incorporating a cartway entrance which leads to the rear of the inn and to other houses.

Turnerised slate roof, gabled at ends where it adjoins other buildings; rear centre stack with rendered brick shaft. Plan: double-depth plan, one room wide.
EXTERIOR: two storeys. Asymmetrical two-window front, roof gabled to the front with pierced wavey bargeboards and a pendant. Recessed, half-glazed, panelled timber front door to right, segmental-headed corbelled cartway to left. One ground- and two first-floor 12-pane horned sashes. INTERIOR: not inspected. Included for group value. Other details: Listed Building number: 392233.
