Pain’s Farmstead, Church Street

There was an ancient farmstead in Church Street, with frontage extending into Cheyney Street. Over the years it has evolved into:

1 & 3 Church Street

5, 7, 9, 9a, 11 & 13 Church Street

2 & 2a Cheyney Street

From about 1901 to 1951 it also included The Priory, the old farmhouse under a new name and separate ownership. After it burnt down in December 1951 the land was merged back into the original plot.
