Numbers 5, 6 and 7, Potters Lane in Barnstaple, a group of unlisted dwellings on the west side of Potters Lane, were demolished by the District Council in December 1980 as they were considered to be structurally unsafe. Numbers 5 and 6 made up a two-storey cob and stone building with sash windows. Number 7 was a rendered building with casement windows. No record was made, but T J Miles is said to have undertaken some work on these buildings at some time.
