BYRON HOUSE AND HAMPTON LODGE ~

At No. 13, North Road is Byron House and has has an early-19th-century stuccoed facade and additions on the south side.

John Betjeman (1906-1984) attended school here, as well as Elizabeth Taylor, in her early days.

No. 15 is Hampton Lodge is interesting in that the wrought iron railings and gate survived a widespread removal for scrap during the War.

No. 17, Byron Cottage, has a plaque to A.E. Houseman (1859-1936), where he wrote "A Shropshire Lad".

The house is grade II-listed and features elegant sashes, wooden floors and beams and a narrow but bright country-style kitchen backing on to the  paved back garden.

Byron is not associated with the famous poet.
