POLECATS
Heyshott, West Sussex.
 

Deeds to this house show it was originally 2 dwellings. The western half belonged to George Miles in 1840 and it stayed in the family until sold in 1922. The eastern half, owned by David Miles in 1840, also stayed in the same family until sold in 1930 to Martha Boniface. The 2 halves were then joined and sold to Genifer Malden in 1955. She installed mains water and a drainage system, but left much of the interior unchanged. Since then it has been extended and a new kitchen built, but the main part of the cottage is probably less altered than any other house in Heyshott and has great character. Many of the walls are of wattle and daub and remain lime washed. Immediately inside the front door and leading up from what was the lean-to, is the staircase which is an open, ladder like, structure. The doorways of the little upstairs rooms are barely 4ft 6in high and have crudely boarded doors.
In part, from the book 'Heyshott'
