High St. Nos. 28 & 30

This house and shop was built as a timber framed property in the late 17th century, but has a 19th century front. It is unusual and distinctive due to the vitrified brown brick with red brick vertical bands.  At the north end the gable shows exposed framing that has been infilled with red brick. The front has flush sash windows with gauged brick lintels. The two doors have rounded stucco heads. The house on the right was converted to a commercial premises in the 19th century.  There is a single storey extension built of vitrified brick also. Inside house number 28 there is a large inglenook fireplace.
