Statement of Interest

The lodge, No 4 Viewfield Lane (see separate listing) is dated 1824. It may be assumed that the house dates from this time also. Wood?s map does not show the house, and it does not appear on any map until 1858. The subdivision of the house took place in the 1950s (according to the present owner of the upper flat).
