This was part of a much larger complex of ancient buildings, many of which were demolished to make way for a 1950s/60s eyesore that is now Princess House. Before being bought out bu Rackham's department stores, it was owned by J Della-Porta, a prominent Shrewsbury businessman, but before the first world war, it seems to have been a private house, as a Miss Marwick, organizer of the Shrewsbury branch of the Women's Suffrage Political Union lived here in 1913.
Excavations in the cellar of the building have revealed the remains of a mediaeval water-hole or well (described by others as a "manure pit" - take your pick).
