w of the station on the Andover Road, The Old Stores, a pair of semi-detached cottages and former shop of 1897 by Lutyens for the Earl of Northbrook. He plays games with the cottages: first-floor oriels that one expects to see centrally placed under the tile-hung gables are combined into one large central oriel, apparently unsupported. Conversely, the ground-floor windows have drifted to the outer corners. (Bullen et al, 2010, p.397)
