Statement of Interest

Commissioned by Arthur Trevelyan of Tyneholm, a major local benefactor, who was also responsible for Tyneholm Cottages neighbouring to the S, and in whose memory the Temperance Hall was built. The left dormerhead bears the carving "18", though the right pne fails to complete the date. A wall-mounted post box is placed to right of the Post Office ground floor window.
