Site Management (19 June 2012)

2 storey and attic, five bays, end terraced property with slated roof. Two doors - one panelled, the other not visible beneath boarding, rectangular fanlights over.

Doesn't appear on the 1832 Great Reform Act Plan of Wick, but does appear on the 1st edition OS (1;2:500 series) map. A section of the building to the west has been removed at some point in the past - from the 1st edition OS (1;2:500 series) map a pend existed leading to the fish curing yard to the rear. Assuming it followed the pattern of the rest of the terrace, a further two bays to the west may have existed.

Wick grew rapidly through the 19th century to become the largest herring port in Europe.
