Look out for the delightful 17th century thatched Oak Cottage – the home of Charles Budd, his wife Louisa and 14 children from 1820. Two of the children reportedly emigrated to Utah with their parents as Mormon pioneers around 1859.

A little further on the left is the timber framed South Cottage. Here in 1872 Susan Budd, a 30 year old spinster, concealed and buried her child and was sentenced to six months in prison.

At the end of Hyde Street turn right into Pound Lane.
