220 High Street, Gothic House, Cottenham

History of 20 High Street

1733:

from Francis Garrett, Cottenham Ablaze:

This is believed to have been the site of Vincent Wayman’s house, where now Gothic House, once the home of Mr Franklin, stands today. Vincent Wayman, a Quaker, experienced a fire and a loss of £1,215.

This building escaped the 1850 fire because it was brick and tile.
