220 High Street, Gothic House, Cottenham
History of 20 High Street
Probably c.1700. Some fragments of medieval stone in garden.
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.
