Do you mean the building on the corner – No 1/2 Giles Place, on Gilesgate?

Take a look at the Gilesgate Gallery in the Photo Archive (https://www.hexhamhistorian.org//historic-hexham/photograph-archive/photo-archive-choices/hexham-choices/streets-choices/gilesgate-gallery/). There are a number of images of that building, which I think was originally a Methodist Chapel, as a number of different retail outlets (Burcher grocery store, The Perfect Pantry), and images of its conversion to residential.

Images of the Skinners Arms (now the Tannery) are also in a separate gallery at: https://www.hexhamhistorian.org//historic-hexham/photograph-archive/photo-archive-choices/hexham-choices/pubs-choices/tannery-gallery/
