Frogge Street, Ickleton

History of Frogge Street cottages

This is the approximate location of the cottage in Frogge Street  where William John Plumb and his wife Rose née Hagger moved in 1930:

They set up home in Frogge Street, Ickleton, n this small cottage on the left hand side going in ((about the fifth cottage on the left) opposite the Beehive Public House and Off Licence, which was run by Mr and Mrs Art Rule.

(from Little Un’s Story by Derek Plumb, pub 2002)

In 1936 the family moved to one of the ‘1936 Cottages’  just along from the Red Lion (Ickleton Lion) Public House. The family stayed there until 1953 when they moved to the bungalow ‘Luckfield” at Stump Cross, Great Chesterford.
