Old Farm CottagesBuilding Status: Listed Building
I was told this house was built in 1500-20, which accords with the information in the listing.
Jill Jacob was born in this house (as were the rest of the Redit family); a year after she married Duncan Jacob, they moved into the right-hand half of the house – it was two dwellings at the time.
At one time the houses were known as Nos. 1 & 2 Hall Cottages, School Road; now they are Old Farm Cottage (on the left) and The Blooms, Farm Meadow. The single storey part to the right was enlarged to 2-storey when it was restored in 1984.
