Very late C18. Lived in and probably built by P M Hardwick, the leader of the group who developed The Kymin (qv). It was the Town Clerk's house in 1802 when visited by Nelson when he and Lady Hamilton were entertained there and in the garden behind (qv Nelson's Seat). It has been a bank since at least 1916 (OS Map).
