Mount Cottage - 95 Winchester Road

Mount Cottage, 95 Winchester Road, formerly Mount Kestrel


Until the 1990s it was lived in by Kay Slocum, whose brother is on the War Memorial and whose other claim to fame was that it was he who flew a spitfire before the War under the Alresford Road Bridge out of Winchester leading to it being called Spitfire Bridge. 


In 1997, since the photo was taken, a thatched wing was built on by the Massey Chase family


The 1920 Baring Sale shows that it was let to Mr. H W Day on a rental of £7 0s 0d and the included allotment garden was let to Mr F Hillary. Total acreage 0.544. 


The team are still researching the history of Mount Cottage.
