28 and 30 The Square
This pair comprises one of the even more substantial three-storey houses built in the town in the 19th century. Although few in number, they tend to be sited, as here, in locations that emphasise their presence and increase their impact. Its decorative features and characteristics are not unlike those of Millbrook above, although being painted in a single colour it appears somewhat less elaborate.
