The property numbers on the map are those used in the tithe apportionment and are not the same as the house numbers allocated in 1876. Dwellings are shaded pink, work places, churches, outbuildings etc. are shaded grey

In the notes below tithe refs. are prefixed 'T', High Street house numbers have no prefix.

On the northern side of the High Street, working eastwards:

  • (T372/254): the One Tun is marked with Old Spring Gardens to its west, One Tun Yard to its east
  • 'Harding Court' is marked, running between (T366/257) and (T365/257-1)
  • (T362/258-264): a parcel of land owned by John Grimault, the description indicates 7 houses and gardens occupied the plot but there look to be 8 on the map

  • (T344/277): James Fletcher owned 4 houses and premises on this plot and presumably occupied the large house fronting the High Street, rather than the three smaller ones on Back Lane
