From the survey of 1914 by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments.
Left to right, 50 Bridge Street (single storey, one of four almshouses 50-58 Bridge Street), 48 Bridge Street (woman at door), 46 Bridge Street (children at door), part of what is probably 44 Bridge Street. Numbers 46-48 were described by the RCHM in 1914 as a ‘house, two tenements’, and they had an oval panel with the date 1703.
The bicycle probably belongs to the RCHM Surveyor.
The original RCHM Record Card for these buildings from 1914, contains rather more about their structure and history. They were Witham Monument 39. I think the cards may now be held by Historic England in Swindon.
