LL Catalogue: "18th Century farm workers
GW 1993/1 adds:
"The Spinney is based on a simple design found
in the Cambridgeshire Fens. This timber farmed cottage built in the 18th
century for a farm worker is single bay construction with a tiny
outhouse attached. A later occupant, probably Victorian had grand
designs for his house which is evident in a Palladian style porch"
suggests its in Wicken based on there being a Spinney Fen & Spinney
Abbey. JRS has checked the area to no avail.
"Interpretation of a
public house in Cambridgeshire, and is based on many medieval inns that
exist in the area. Oak framed and Tudor chimneys...."

Summer House at
(120m SW of house)
To view this one you have to get
permission from the school as it is not possible to see it otherwise
as it is in the grounds of the house. The easiest way to find it is to
go in via Brampton pass the
air base over the roundabout and right at the next round about and the
school is on that road
on the left hand side.
