Full description

1981. Fell out of ceiling of lath and plaster during renovations.
Fifteen clay hand-made lamps, fourteen of which conical and one cuboid. Four have remains of wax candles.
In NCM. [1]
Identified by S. Margeson (NCM), 30 July 1981.
Compiled by S. Margeson (NCM), 11 September 1981.

The listed building description 1996 for 15 Station Street (not Road) dates the building to early 18th century, refronted 1830; but it states 'formerly 17 Station Street' so this may not be the same building. Station Road is to the north but does not appear to have had numbered houses pre 20th century.
Compiled by E. Rose (NLA), 16 March 1999.
