In the High Street there is a very good range of cob and thatch. As well as plain vernacular the frontage continues through to classical detailing but is done so in a manner that is perfectly in scale and proportion to the overall profile. Other details: Maps.

Cottage and former barn. 18th century, house refurbished in 19th century, whole modernised circa 1980 when the barn was brought into domestic use. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings, one end is timber-framed; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with late 19th century brick; thatch roof. Long building facing west onto the High Street. The original house is at the left (northern) end and has a 2-room with central staircase plan. The right room has a rear lateral stack and the left room has an end stack in the party wall there. The building continues to right as a former barn with a carriageway through the right end. House is 2 storeys. The former barn is still open to the roof. The house section has a symmetrical 3-window front of 19th century casements with glazing bars and central part-glazed door is probably contemporary. To right there is a fourth window to the former barn; a similar casement to the ground floor and blind recess at first floor level. The right end has large double plank doors to the carriageway and above it is a full height window of circa 1980 with plain timber mullions. The roof is continuous across the whole building. To left it butts the party wall of 44 High Street and to right it is gable-ended rising above the adjoining Angle Cottage. The gable here is weather boarded.
Interior of house shows no carpentry detail and only 19th and 20th century joinery detail. The roof of the former barn however is exposed and is carried on a series of 18th century A- frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. 42 High Street is one of a group of attractive and varied buildings, most of them listed, in the vicinity of Church of All Saints.
