Annet House, 143 High Street, late 18th century

Local history museum in a plain classical house with fanlit and pilastered door. Granny's attic within (and twice as fascinating). Render cloured off. Long rig walls and garden to rear retain early relics.

At 143 High Street, a merchant's house, Annet House, also restored, and converted into a museum and heritage centre, gives some clues to eighteenth-century housing and their large rigs to the rear. The rig wall probably partially predates the present building; nineteenth-century features, such as a cistern and ice-house, may be viewed.
