47 High Street is distinctive for it's Dutch gable. It's locally known as "Ireton's House" - after General Ireton, a Roundhead military commander who married one of Olive Cromwell's daughters. The building is 17th Century.
If you face the far side of the street, you'll note that none of the shops are older than 1926. Before this date, the High Street only had shops on one side. On the other side was the high wall and tall trees of the Ashley Park estate.
