About the building

(With no 18) Slight projections of 2 bays on each side topped by plain pediments. The pavilion ends over the two windows are technically incorrect as it leads to an unresolved duality. Sash windows with glazing bars intact. Interesting plaster design ceiling in former Board Room on first floor. Photographs on loan to Abergavenny Museum. Described as new build in 1857, this and no 18 as a semi-detached property.  (l Hurley)

Behind the shop, small factory & stores were built to manufacture home made boiled sweets. On new Year’s Day sweets were given to the the children of Abergavenny.
