Description

Abbey Lawn Cottages, at 34-48 Church Street (originally extending to no. 51 Church Street), were built as a speculative development of the Abbey, built in the 15th or early 16th century. No. 40 Church Street was internally remodelled in the late 16th or early 17th century. It was refronted in the early 19th century. The terrace was restored from 1967, though the later frontage of no. 40 was retained. The cottages are an important surviving example of a medieval terrace and are Grade I Listed.
