    This small lane has a few nice 18th century houses. At the far end of the lane is Steps Cottage, arguably the most unusual building in Bishop's Stortford. Triangular in shape and barely six feet wide at its narrowest point, this house appears to have been built to fit the small parcel of land at the bottom of the hill where Basbow Lane and King Street converge.

    King Street

    A flight of stone steps leads from Basbow Lane to the bottom of King Street, a steep hill lined with early 19th century terraced cottages that are mostly fronted with white picket fencing. High on the wall of numbers 25-33 can still be seen fire insurance company ‘firemarks’ – the ‘Royal’ insurance plates being an indication to fire fighters of the time that these houses were under that company’s cover.
