Records show the first pepper corn style rent was in 1815, leaving the vendors to believe the building was built in approximately 1805. A former bakery and shop, No.7 Shrewsbury Street holds the honour of being where the very first crusty loaf bread was baked. Bought by the current vendors in 1985 the property ran for 10 years as a village shop until the owners retired in 1995. Since then the property has been tastefully refurbished and transformed into an entire residential home which was fully completed in 2010. To date the vendors have loved every single minute of living in this superb home, enjoying the company of the pleasant neighbours, the useful nearby amenities and the friendly community throughout this quintessential English village.
