Nos 37-41 date from the 1780s, no 33 was added to the rear, and no 43 to the right, before 1841 (when they appear on the Tithe Map). Nos 37-41 (originally 4 houses) are of Arkwright's Phase I type, ie originally single unit in plan with rear services, 3-storeys, side stairs against end and party walls behind and to one side of front entrance; front elevations of two bays, the entrance bay with no windows above, the other with two-light stone mullioned windows to each floor; doorway with substantial rectangular lintels and crude capitals and bases, all tooled; moulded stone eaves cornice; ridge stacks. No 37 (Lloyd's Bank) with fenestration intact to upper floors (windows with horned sashes), doorway with c.1900 stone surround, the double panelled doors and large window to right (with glazing bars) late-C20. Extended to left c.1900, 2 storeys, slightly recessed, one-window bay to street with horned sashes to each floor to front and left return. No 39 (formerly two houses) with fenestration intact above (windows with horned sashes); small C19 shop window and half-glazed and panelled door in original surround to left; its companion and associated window (to right) replaced with early-C19 double, bowed shop windows with glazing bars flanking glazed and panelled door with rectangular overlight containing decorative glazing bars. No 41 with intact fenestration above (windows with plate-glass casements) and with C20 windows inserted in the blank bay above the doorway (which is original, with 2?4 double glazed doors); inserted C19 shop front with pilasters. No 43 is a little later (see vertical masonry joint), with C19 shop window with pilasters and panelled reveals to wide doorway to left, late C20 glazing bars. Upper windows in original surrounds (C20 2-light casements). One original stone ridge stack, the others replaced in red and black brick. No 43 extends to rear to form double-depth plan, the front end wall rendered, the rear end wall with windows under cambered arches and a C19 doorway surround and planked door. Stone end stack to rear range. No 35 occupies lean-to outshut behind no 37 with 3 original windows (One of 2 lights with stone mullion). No 33 (now part, and to rear, of no 39) comprises a wing that returns to form a storage or workshop range running parallel to the street. Planked door with overlight and some C19 windows.

Coursed stone rubble; 3 storeys; 4 4-light plain mullioned windows fitted with modern sashes and 2 later casement windows; plain eaves; tiles.
