Part of a terrace known in the 19th century as Tinklers Row: "(A) Row
of mean-looking cottages 1-storey high, inhabited by Tinkers, Muggers, Horsethieves, and Basket Makers, being the descendents of the original stock of gipsies that once infested this part of the country." Each cottage would almost certainly have been thatched, but all have now been raised in height and slated.
