Statement of Interest

The harled walkway leading to Andrew Wood Court overlaps the E

boundary of this building (clearly visible from the S). Similarity with the adjacent Nos 43-47 (especially rear elevations) suggests a similar date of construction whilst the rear arch suggests the building may originally have been a carriage-house. Previously listed as 116 - 117 Main Street, Newhaven.
