Sommerfield's Cottage
Public Domain 1900
Sommerfield's Cottage was located behind the Gables Farm farmhouse in Dovecote Field. The building on the left (you can only see the door) still (1st Febuary 2009) exists, all the other buildings including the cottage have been demolished. Access to the cottage was along a track from Church Street, the entrance now carries a public right of way (Whatton FP13). This photograph was taken in about 1900 and shows Mrs. Somerfield and her daughter Elizabeth. Our thanks to Trevor Webster for this photograph.
