Full Description

Returning to High Street, a mid-late 19th century terrace, angled towards the parish church helps to form what amounts to a square with the church the dominant feature, and other buildings providing excellent group value. The more ornate first floor fenestration and much shop-front detail is more recent, probably early 20th century. [1] The terrace is depicted on the 2022 MasterMap data. [2] It is also shown on the 25 inch 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map. [3]
