Nos. 88, 90, was built c. 1735. John Carr, yeoman, purchased the property in 1733 and his will dated 1738 refers to his 'newly erected dwelling house'. The house was drastically remodelled c. 1795. A kitchen was added at the back in 1829 and further alterations took place in the second quarter of the 19th century when part was converted to a shop and the entrance was refitted to match the new shop front.
The house has two storeys, cellars and attics and the original plan comprised a single room on each side of the entrance hall which contained the staircase. The staircase is of the late 18th century with close string, turned balusters and square newels. Demolished 1958.
