scantling and tend to be heavier than those found in the late C18 or early

Pink Geranium. Restaurant,Station Road (q.v.). The cottage retains the
original newel staircase off the centre room and a doorway through the framed
partition wall from the centre room or hall to the parlour. The end bay to
the right hand was originally open to the roof and was probably used for

a single run-out stop at the other end. Clasped side purlin roof. In 1842
the cottage was owned by John Hitch and occupied by William Long.
