Test Cottage, Village Street

Test Cottage (centre panel)
Mike Gee

This lovely house is approximately 300 years old, although the original four-roomed cottage was enlarged in the Victorian era. In 1877, the Schoolmaster’s cottage in the Churchyard was demolished and the Schoolmaster and his wife moved to Test Cottage with the school boarders. The house was extended in the 1970’s and ’80’s and the coach house converted to a garage. An ancient yew tree stands in the garden.
