Statement of Interest

NOTES: 73-75 High Street retains some original features and follows the old street line. Previously both houses were entered through doors fronting the street, however the entrance to 73 was re-aligned to the rear in the late 19th century and the door to the principal elevation blocked. The arch spanning the pend is attached to 61 High Street which until the late 20th century had been a forestaired 2-storey house, the house was rebuilt as a shop after fire damage.
