Hillside Cottage, Frieth, 1995 - from Joan Barksfield's collection

Hillside Cottage is on the opposite corner of the lane to Hilliers.

Until about 1960 this was an attractive brick and flint cottage but then the exterior was rendered - so far the date of this building is unknown to me, but it would appear that the plot on which it stands originally formed part of the Elleryes farm holding.

During the building of the Shop and Post Office [sadly now closed] (on Hillside Cottage's garden) some old foundations were found, but whether of a barn or early cottage was not established.


Rowleys, opposite Hillside Cottage, was allowed to be built as a farm labourer's cottage for Dovers Farm, in 1953. It has been much added to, in stages, since.

Rowleys is named after the field below the footpath (on some maps this same field is called Lowleys)

[ John Nurcombe writes (January 2013): My parents bought Dovers Farm in 1950 and modernised the house. They also modernised some buildings. In 1952 they had Rowleys built by Hanson a local builder, for the farm manager. We left the farm in 1957 and James Owen bought it. I believe he later moved into Rowleys and extended it after selling the farm. ]
