Statement of Interest

A good example of its unusual type, particularly notable for the retention of much of its original detailing. The OS Name Book notes 'Bonnerdub' as being "...two inferior cottages under one roof..." - a description fitting the single storey range which is now the ancillary structure (1999). The 1899 OS map also marks this range as 'Bonnerdub'. The original occupier is said to have been caller 'Bonner' - see OS Name Book.
