Description:The highly decorated three-storey store dates from the end of the 19th century and was originally Lion's furniture store. The lions, which look like ceramic, were originally painted gold. Above the middle windows the semicircular panel has a depiction of the "Green Man", representing renewal or rebirth. The decoration is repeated along the side of the building down Consort Street. Further along to the left on the corner of Trade Street is the Talbot Hotel, a popular public house from the mid 19th century.
