Behind 117 High Street, Blue Post Yard

This is a single storey, brick built structure. The front and west walls are painted white except for the lowest five rows of brick, which are black. These facades have brickwork in stretcher bond with wide mortar joins. The north wall is unpainted and has been much altered. It contains a number of types of brick laid in a variety of bonds. The mortar is patched and in poor condition.

The roof is a single pitch covered in slate. There are no chimney stacks. On the Blue Post Yard façade there is an entrance with an arched brick lintel. The door has two leaves of plank construction. There are currently no windows visible on any wall. At either side of the entrance arched brick lintels are visible above advertising hoardings. This may indicate the position of blocked windows. Guttering, attached to a wooden barge board, runs along the Blue Post Yard façade. There is a metal down comer on the west wall. The rear wall shows evidence of other structures that no longer stand.
