|Name:||Church Cottages or Church Farm Cottages|
A range of late 17th century cottages with substantial later alterations. In 2011 a watching brief to the south of 1 Church Cottage revealed a substantial ditch of probably medieval date, which may be the precursor to the church boundary and/or roadway. An area of unmarked graves associated with the church (NHER 7474) were also discovered close to the south-west corner of the cottage. See NHER 55427 for further details.
