Round House, Little Thetford

History of the Round House

Vanishing Cambridgeshire p.175 notes that the origins of this building are uncertain. It was two three-storey  cottages until 1959 and then stood empty. By 1980 it had been turned into one dwelling.

The note on this photo above says that the Round House was built in the 15th century as a lookout tower, later converted into two cottages, and last occupied in 1959. (MoC364/75)
