Cottages at Graveley

History of Graveley

Approximate position

The photo shows cottages ‘near the church’.

In 1909 Jesus College owned 13 cottages in the village which were in very poor condition. However the college refused to repair and modernise the cottages as they said that the rental income was too low.
