Turnpike Cottages
Turnpike Cottages 1&2
Turnpike Cottages 1&2 photographed in October 2009. Sadly we don’t have any old photographs to compare, but, in 1997, Jemma Hogwood, who lived in the house, wrote a school project about its history. This is the most detailed research we have, and includes a very useful timeline for the building and a date of 1892 for the statue of the saint, in this case the “Good Shepherd”

The Cottages were Grade 2 listed in 1985.
