This stone-built, double-fronted house blends well with its older neighbouring properties but is, in fact, of modern construction. The plot on which it stands was formerly part of the grounds of Thimbleby House and on it stood a barn which can be seen in three old photographs.

The earliest (dating from Victorian/Edwardian times) gives a glimpse of the front wall of the barn and the external steps leading up to a door at first floor level.

The stairs can be seen to the right of the children standing on the pavement. A later, aerial, view shows the barn clearly (the second building block from the right and on the far side of the street) and indicates a large structure of comparable scale to the house which replaced it

The planning application made for the demolition of the barn and erection of the house was lodged in 1975 by Gordon Bailey who was then the owner of Thimbleby House (which is the large house seen to the left of the barn). By 1976 he was writing to the Council from Lamb Cottage on the opposite side of the road. Had he sold Thimbleby House by then?
