This early 19th century house was situated on the south side of what is now Civic Centre Road opposite the Post Office. In the 19th century it was the home of the Aslatt family, owners of the coach building firm with workshops and showroom on the south corner of Civic Centre Road and Above Bar Street. Aslatt’s ceased trading in the 1890s. After the death of William Poat Aslatt in 1905 the Weighbridge was incorporated into the adjacent Grand Theatre and used as offices and dressing rooms. It was demolished in the 1960s when the Grand Theatre was demolished.
