Cottages on Parsonage Lane

We always feel a bit short on the history of Parsonage Lane but we do have a sketch which dates from the mid nineteenth century.

This purports to show the cottages at the very start of Parsonage Lane. The artist has the advantage of being able to create a view from a location a present day photographer just can’t even think of replicating.

In fact, these buildings don’t really tie up with those we see today but may well be essentially the same structures.

What is familiar is the cobbled path with the irregular kerb stones. That still exists down Parsonage Lane.

Has anybody any further history or information about Parsonage Lane?
