Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as Bessie Bar Cottage (Lately Mrs Kim), West Green Opposite 'Aanvaar'. The N wing is also shown on the 1860 map. The N wing had a separate entrance to the cottage (before the original entrance door was turned into a window in the later-late 20th century), suggesting that this wing may have been the weaving shop.
