1852-3 Villa style. House. Richard Cobden was born in the farmhouse that stood on
this site on the 3rd June 1804. This was sold by his grandfather in 1809 but in
1847 he repurchased the property and in 1852 or 1853 rebuilt the house, which he
continued to occupy until his death on the 2nd April 1866. His daughter, Jane
Cobden Unwin, and her husband, T. Fisher Cobden, gave the house to the Cobden
Memorial Association to form an institute in memory of the life and work of Richard
Cobden for peace, free trade and goodwill, as a tablet in the porch records. It
contains pictures and books that belonged to Cobden, John Bright and others and is
listed for historical reasons. Stuccoed. 2 storey. 7 windows facing south.
Modillion eaves cornice. Hipped slate roof. 2 bays on ground floor. Doorway
between with side lights, these and the doorway itself flanked by pilasters with
