Flemish bond brickwork with light headers, on chamfered plinth (all dressings of painted stone) with V-jointed quoins and bracketed cornice carried round the left return. Hipped graduated greenslate roof without chimneys. 3 storeys, single bay extending to rear; long narrow building of double depth. Early C20 door and shop window on ground floor, under overall signboard on carved wooden brackets. Tripartite window above and Venetian window on 2nd floor, both in stone surrounds and 2nd floor window with bracketed sill. Plain brick right return faces onto Longcakes Lane. Left return, facing onto East Tower Street, has 2 sash windows, with glazing bars, one above the other, at the left, in brick reveals. Evidence of ground-floor windows infilled with brick.
INTERIOR not inspected.
HISTORY: Although this is at the end of the present Scotch Street and this house would be expected to be No.1, originally the street extended `without' the city as far as Drovers Lane where Rickergate started. The reason was that the city boundary was marked by the ditch and when this was infilled the boundary remained outside the walls. For the restoration of the buildings, with illustrations, see Cumberland News (1981). (Cumberland News: 12 June 1981: P.14).
