Description

Abbey Lawn Cottages were built as a speculative development for the Abbey in the 15th or early 16th century. The terrace originally ran from no. 34 to no. 51 Church Street, though only nos. 34-48 survive. It was restored between 1967 and around 1972. The ground floor north wall seen here is part of the 18th century underbuilding which enclosed the space below the jetty into the ground floor of the building. The original building line was restored with a new timber frame. The cottages are an important surviving example of a medieval terrace and are Grade I Listed.
