Seed Warehouses

When Thomas Cullen owned Bramstons, 16 Chipping Hill, he built these seed warehouses on land at the rear of the house. One is an early-mid 19th century warehouse in buff coloured gault brick with red brick pilasters. The other is an early 19th century timber weatherboarded warehouse with three storeys and loft loading doors. They have both now been converted to residential use.

They are both listed Grade II.
