These cottages have long been demolished and replaced by modern bungalows. Another view of them can be seen on the old war memorial photo on the Village Centre page.

The picture is taken from Nash’s Farm wall which you can see close up on the left, and looking towards The Green (village centre).

In the close-up below you can see the old car perhaps pulled in at Pigg’s Garage.

The cottages were pulled down around 1967.

Update: Dec 2015:

Looking at the full photograph above, in the cottages that are facing us, on the right of the photograph: Stanley and Bessie Clarke lived in the left hand cottage.  And Charles and Ellen Clarke lived in the right hand cottage. Charles and Ellen were Stanley’s mother and father.  (With thanks to Stanley’s grand-daughter for this information).  You can read all about what it was like in Charles and Ellen’s cottage from their grand-daughter, here.

You can see the Clarke family on the 1911 census living in Brick Row.

Miss Dove fetching water

The photograph above shows a lady, believed to be Miss Dove from the end of Mullion Cottage, fetching water from the stand pipe in Church Road before mains water came to the village.
