Description:These buildings in Market Street were demolished in the 1960s.

The building on the right, with the plaster figures on the roof, was a tea warehouse, built in the eighteenth century when tea was an expensive luxury. The figures were oriental and were used as a form of advertisement.

On the left is the Rose and Crown public house, minus its sign (the frame of which can be clearly seen).
