Background.

It is our understanding from the seller that this row of terraces was likely to be merchant warehouses in the 1600's and the property has been dated back to 1650 but has the potential to be even older than this should parchment documents be further examined. 

Former uses include a butchers, tobacconist and a hair dressers. Our client has owned this property for approximately 45 years and she retired from operating her own hairdressers four years ago. This property is now unoccupied and offered with immediate possession.
