Townscape / landscape character
Mix of traditional and neo traditional development, residential and commercial. Redlands Farmhouse is listed enclosed behind leylandii hedge. Former traditional farm buildings in use as a craft centre. Young trees along Redlands Lane frontage lack wider landscape impact. Cypress within the car park area is of little merit.
Townscape / landscape character mitigation
Keep stone-built former barns and convert to residential. Demolish buildings which lack architectural merit. Introduce frontage development onto B3163 and onto Redlands Lane.
