Building to left   building to right


The house on this site appears to have been totally rebuilt some time in the 20th century, probably using the original foundations and walls of an earlier building on the High Street frontage.

From about 1901 the property was occupied by Mr Chapman, the village baker.  When died in 1941, his son Ted continued the business.
