File 3 - Cedar Grange

In the early 1820s Fanny Norgate sketched the above cottage in Lynch Green.

The picture shows that it had already been extended twice, the original three bay cottage being a tall early 17th Century house. During the 18th Century, a low range was added to the left and a single bay one storey outshut with attic to the right rear.

In the 19th Century an impressive two storey porch was built on the front and the outshut replaced with a ridged roof and gable.

The axial attack was replaced by two cross stacks carrying three octagonal shafts. Sometime after this it was renamed Cedar Grange.

Incidentally the owner responsible for the major 19th Century rebuild stated in his will that "his coffin be not screwed down until putrefaction had set in."
