Frontage wall. Early C19. Of Hitch's patent bricks buff in colour. About
2 m tall with 5 triangular front buttresses and rounded copings all of
patent brickwork. In 1828 Caleb Hitch of Ware patented his hollow
interlocking oversize bricks roughly 12 inches by 6 in by 6 in which
economised on mortar and increased structural strength. Their
distribution was mainly around Ware but extended N along the A10 formerly
a Turnpike Road. (Branch Johnson (1970) 20).
