4 Station Road

A bungalow that stands on part of an ancient enclosure, which was part of the Wimpole Estate. In the later 19th Century this land was let as garden land often in association with the five Town Houses on the opposite side of the road; today three cottages and Nos 5, 7 & 9 Station Road.

The ancient enclosure is shown on the Enclosure and Tithe Maps below and is the plot, just south of the Church, number 22.

The land was later acquired by David Hitch, who sold it as four separate building plots in 1978. This plot was acquired by Michael and Margaret Pickerill on 7 June 1978 and they had the bungalow built.
