|Type of record:||Building|
|Name:||23, 25 Oakfield Road|
This is an extremely rare example of 19th century timber framed aisled construction workshops with brick gables and stacks, lap glazing and vertical weatherboarding. It was built around 1860. This is an unusual survival and includes rare features such as the timber-framed construction, vertical weatherboarding and lap glazing. This is probably one of the most complete examples of its type in the eastern counties and is substantially unaltered.
