Both houses date from about 1620.

That on the left incorporated a branch of the Midland Bank (the former name of HSBC) while the rest of the house formed accommodation for the bank manager. The front was entirely refaced with plaster and imitation timbering.

That on the right was built as a timber-framed building with end walls of red brick. Under the will of Sir John Williams, dated 7 April 1723, the house was left to the parish to provide education for six local poor boys, together with certain lands, the rent of which was to provide an income. A datestone at the north end states that it was ‘rebuilt in 1725’ that is, at the time it became a school when it was re-fronted in brick with some new additions at the rear. The school continued to function until it was merged with the newly built National School in 1844. Subsequently the house was sold and restored. The Georgian style porch was added sometime in the twentieth century.
