Burgage development. Probably C17 and C18 remodelled C19. Rubble with
Cotswold stone roofs, roofline stepped up. Frontage angled with plot. 2
storeys. Irregular casement windows, mostly C20, roughly 4:4:2. Plain
doorways, irregularly placed with modern doors. To East end is a 2-storey
weatherboarded extension with jettied 1st floor (C20). College Yard
consists of the rear extension of premises of Muriel Beach Thomas, College
Cottage, Cobble Court Cottage and Cobble Court). This well preserved
example of burgage development is very picturesque, especially as
approached through the mediaeval alleyway arch.
