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 34-48 survive. It was restored between 1967 and 1972. The projecting gable in the centre of this photograph belongs to 40 Church Street, which was refronted in the 19th century and remained as such during the restoration work in the late 20th century. The cottages are an important surviving example of a medieval terrace and are Grade I Listed.
