Full Description

In Queen Street are several noteworthy buildings. There is a good group of mixed stone and render facing Church Steps, with an irregular frontage extending to the corner of Cavendish Place. Within the mainly three storey frontage detail, are gables with barge board and finial, original timber casement windows and panelled doors including an ornate Art Nouveau style overlight. The effect is spoiled at the splayed corner with Cavendish Place by a wide later 20th century former shop front. [1] The buildings are not shown on the Lynton Tithe Map; however, they do appear on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map. [2,3]
