History of Ison's Cottage

[Exact location unknown by editor]

W M Palmer commented on this picture in the Cambridge Chronicle in 1924: The house in which William Ison lives has a chimney stack with the shafts set diagonally, and was built about 1650 as a small farmhouse. Ison’s cottage in Church lane was demolished and replaced by bungalows in the early 1960s.
