Appletrees - 29 High Street April 2015
29 High Street was listed by the former Department of Environment in June 1974 as Grade II, of special interest. The cottage dates from the late 17th century and is constructed partly from colour-washed roughcast over a timber frame and partly from limestone rubble, itself partly colour-washed; it has a clay tiled roof. The structure comprises a single storey with attics.
The Rating and Valuation Act 1925 specified that every building and piece of land in the country was to be assessed to determine its rateable value. The valuer visiting the cottage [DV1/C215/76] found it was owned and occupied by William E Wyant. It comprised a living room, a kitchen and two bedrooms. Outside stood a brick and tiled slaughter house and a butcher's shop measuring 13 feet 9 inches by 9 feet. There was a large garden. The valuer thought it "nice".
