The Island Site

The Island Site sits in the middle of the centre of the village bounded on the east and south side by the village green; the B1152 road to its north and Waitings Lane and the village centre pond to its west. As such the ‘Island’ must be as old as the village centre itself.

The site can best be described in three parts:-

  • The oldest is the chocolate box thatched cottage which is 17a The Green.
  • Next to that is 17 The Green – the house.
  • Shops facing the pond to the rear of No17, some were attached to it.

The history of the above is being prepared, in the meantime you may like to see the photos below.
