About the building

Late 18th or early 19th century (Welsh Office)

19th century shop front, probably original door on left. There are exposed rafter ends, not corbels, under the roof. “Hart” is done in mosaic on the doorstep. There are rough hewn, chamfered beams in the front shop.

Originally there must have been a passageway between the two houses where the left hand door is now, as a blocked up Tudor arch leads into it from no 19. This areas is now incorporated into no 17.
