The buildings on the right-hand side are timber-framed although only a small area of the timbers can be seen on the outside. The houses on both sides of the stairs have pantile roofs. The buildings on the right-hand side of the picture appear to be in a state of disrepair. The render has partly fallen off some window panes and pantiles appear to be broken or missing.
