|Name:||Aelred House, 12 Market Place and 27 High Street|
These three buildings create one complicated block on the corner of High Street and Market Place. The High Street block dates to the 17th century and was refaced in the 18th century. The Market Place block is built of 18th century brick and was re roofed in the 19th century. Inside the Market Place block there are 18th century decorations. This part of the building may have been built around an older core. The 18th century brick link between the two blocks is said to have been a machine gun post in World War Two. The barn further to the west was probably built during the 17th century. Reused medieval stones have been used throughout the buildings.
