Research has not been completed yet on this cottage.
Built around 1600, it is timber-framed, with colourwashed brick infill on projecting base. It has a thatched roof. Interesting Smith-made scarfing of main timber beam to living room.
A soldier’s bedding roll fell down when lining a chimney in the 1980’s. This dated from the time of the Battle of Waterloo, and had the name Elliot on it. The Elliot family are recorded as having collected fines from people who allowed their animals to stray on the common land, so this could possibly have been the Elliot family home.
