East Side: Church Lane to Witney Street
The imposing former mansion house at No. 75 dominates this stretch of High Street, which rises gently to the central crossroads. There are, however, some other striking buildings among this run of smallish cottages and shops, most notably the long 16th-century frontage of No. 33, the tall three-storeyed front of Nos. 53-9, and the long Georgian façade of No. 91. Medieval houses survive behind several late façades, and a 14th-century archway (possibly reset) at No. 69. The Burford House Hotel (No. 99) is one of several long buildings remodelled in a 'Cotswold Vernacular' style in the 1920s, which together lend Burford part of its distinctive character.
