Ground Floor – Stall risers are in framed plywood, while historic, upper shop-fronts remain, with ornate, clear, leaded lights including fan-light over recessed entry to left-hand shop. Metal cornice above butts into moulded metal brackets at central and lateral piers.

Second Floor – Segmental-arch window apertures, with pointed-arch hood mouldings, contain replacement, squat, metal frame windows with plywood-boarded upper areas. Three-course-high belt-course, with central dog-toothing, supports hood mouldings. Upper-level masonry corbels out from simple brick frieze and architrave with machicolated, segmental-arch arcade above, supporting modest, metal cornice.

Parapet – Open, round-arch arcade (like a miniature Roman aqueduct), spans between stone-capped piers atop buttresses, and small, metal cornice above is flashed with sheet metal.
