Archive Notes:

6 photos from present time back to around 1900. Plan showing the acquisition in 1852 is found at archive number 1751. See also archive number 0969 for the rear part fronting Crown Square.

This is an 18th century building. The upper floor is said to have been used in the tanning business for the drying of skins. The paneling is said to have come from Holton Park where Cromwell’s daughter was married, hence the name of the house. Sold by a fellmonger in 1849 for private housing.

In the background of the photograph of blacksmith Walter Brazell is a thatched cottahe, which was the predecessor building at 109 High Street, see archive number 1201.
