Timms Cottage(s)
Sedgmoor Road

The Cottage in winter

The Cottage in summer

These cottages are very old,
Perhaps the oldest so Iím told,
With crooked beams, uneven floors,
Little windows, low slung doors,
The sign of many older builds
Before the use of newer skills,
For many houses at this time
Were built from wattle, daub and lime.

These cottages are some of the oldest cottages in the village. They back onto land which was once Sedgmoor Farm so we assume that these were farm cottages from those times. Mr Timms was a farmer who also farmed land near Cobbles Farm. This seems quite a way from these farm cottages but farmers were used to walking many miles in those days.
