AN INTRODUCTION TO & LIST OF THE PROPERTIES WITHIN THE VILLAGE

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The most imposing properties are the old wood frame houses, mostly of the Wealden Hall type of construction that were mostly built in the 13th & 14th centuries. Then there are the stone and brick built farmhouses, the mostly stone built worker’s cottages that were frequently originally double dwellings but have now almost all been converted to single dwellings; both of these types have mostly been extensively extended. Then in the 20th century there were quite a number of new private houses built, and also the three groups of council houses, two were built after the First World War, Cherry Gardens & Parkhouse Cottages, and one after the Second World War, Maypole Cottages, and are mostly now in private ownership.
