Listed building

The following is from Cadw's Listed Buildings database

Adjacent to Nos 1-2 Broad Street, close to the corner with Hall Street.

Built as a house in the mid C18, as part of a larger development with Nos 4 and 5 Broad Street, which together formed the property of the Newill family (the adjacent property is dated 1721 and No 3 appears to be almost contemporary). The building was partially remodelled externally in the later C19, perhaps when it became a shop. It is now used in conjunction with No 4, and the two buildings interconnect on the first floor.

C18 but altered. Similar to Nos 5 and 6, but lower roof-pitch. 3 storeys. One sash window with glazing bars (but C19 or modern rectangular bay on 1st floor). Modernised ground floor. Brick dentilled eaves.

A fine steeply curved staircase with slender stick balusters and swept rail survives at the first floor.

Part of a group of C18-C19 buildings in the centre of the town.
