(510) House, No. 34, was built perhaps c. 1700, on a simple rectangular plan. In the first quarter of the 18th century it was extended at the back, the extension being roofed at right angles to the original house and finishing with a gable. This gable wall is now partly concealed but on the first floor are remains of a symmetrical arrangement of a wide window between two narrow ones, all under elliptical brick arches. The ground floor is now converted to a shop.
