NOTES: The remaining gable to the NW indicates that the house was most probably a single storey cottage similar to that of 5 Livingston Lane (see separate listing). At some point the 1st floor has been added considerably enlarging the house. Originally a line of buildings ran continuously along the lane from the High Street, the house forming the last building to Livingston Lane before it turns sharply to the SW. However in the 1950s a couple of buildings including a dairy were demolished to make room for a car park, leaving a large open space in the lane. Although altered the cottage retains some original fabric and is a reminder of the original character of the lane. The lane takes it name from John Livingston who ran the local dairy in the mid 19th century.
