No 3 is dated 1741 on the stone key of its let hand window. This window, together with those on the upper floor have steeply arched cambered brick heads. Central door is renewed, and a bay window has been inserted to its right. No 2 is also dated 1741 on a keystone. Paired doors to centre, flanked by and shallow bay window (possibly formerly serving as shop window) to left and
16-pane sash window with moulded keystone in flat-arched brick head. Wood mullioned and transomed windows of 2 and 3 lights with cambered brick heads above. No 1 has been refenestrated, and has renewed doorway to left. Dentilled eaves band throughout, end wall stacks, and coped gables at either end of the row.
An interesting example of C18 development, which is almost urban in form. Part of an important group of buildings at the N end of High Street.
