General description and date of structure.
The houses, with the exception of No. 124, belonged to the latter part of the 18th century. They were built of yellow bricks, and had plain square sash windows; the doors had small wood canopies over.
The central house (No. 124) was by far the finest. It was rectangular in plan, and dated from the early part of last century. The front was of grey and red bricks. At the eaves was a large projecting wood cornice; the roof was sharply pitched and tiled, and had five dormers in the front. The entrance doorway, in the centre of the front, had a wood canopy supported by moulded brackets.
Nearly all the rooms were panelled with woodwork of late 18th century date. One cupboard on the ground floor was panelled round with small moulded panelling of early 17th century date, similar in detail to that in the Old Palace.
