No. 61 is the former vicarage house, rebuilt circa 1838. It lies well back from the street and must have done so since at least the beinning of the 16th century as a Court Roll entry for 1511 refers to a vacant piece of ground in front of it. This was previously occupied by the chapel of St. Nicholas and probably more or less that now occupied by No. 64.
