HISTORY Dating back to 16th Century, No. 61 Castle Street is believed to have been built on the site of a former Medieval Hall House. From the late 18th Century, the Archer family owned this, together with the neighbouring properties and yard, from which they ran several businesses including bakery, brewery and butchery. No. 61 held a long history as a cottage with shop/bakehouse until the early 20th Century when it was converted into a residential dwelling.
