Rookery House, Hildersham

History of Rookery House

Precise location unknown

Rookery House was pulled down in 1868. The reason was that there had been a big fire that had destroyed the rectory farm buildings, tithe barn and barn belonging to Manor Farm. The owner of Manor farm wanted to rebuild; Rookery House was empty at the time and the Squire was persuaded to demolish the house so that the bricks could be reused. (Vanishing Cambridgeshire p.122)
