Fairfield House pictured in 2009

Fairfield House is built in what was a cherry orchard belonging to The Yew Tree Inn.

Flint Cottage Rear

Next to Fairfield House is a block of five cottages. [ See next page for the other three ] They were built at different periods and the oldest is Flint Cottage Rear where Mrs McNeil lives. An old property deed shows that this cottage was here in 1652 when it was referred to as "The field called Woodacres and tenement" The field behind is still called Woodacres. One architect examining Flint Cottage believed that it was part Mediaeval. If you look on the east facing wall of this cottage you will see evidence of two blocked windows.

This picture is marked "Rear of Flint Cottage 2" in the index, pictured in 1971

Just prior to 1865  when the present school was built, a Mrs West kept a Lace School here and it was this little school that transferred to the new building with Mrs West as Schoolmistress.
