Point of Interest Details

So we have arrived back at the Honey House, Point of Interest Number 5.

This position in the High Street is possibly a good position from which to let your eyes run along the roofline all the way down the High Street (on either side).

The fact that there are few adjacent houses at precisely the same height is most noticeable, and today this certainly adds to the considerable charm of the town. Also, no major houses are exactly alike, and what could be described as, almost a mansion, can stand ‘cheek by jowl’ with a small cottage! Or, put another way, lace dealers, brewery owners and shoe manufacturers could literally live next door to their workers!

Continue walking back to the Market Place and pause again at Berrill's Court (Point of Interest Number 6), where many of the lace makers lived in small thatched cottages. (The entrance to Berrill’s Court is next to the Chemist’s shop at Number 14 Market Place.)
