Old Photos of Witham

35-39 Chipping Hill

Taken: 30 June 1914, Ref: M706

From the survey of 1914 by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments.

Left to right, Barnardiston House (35 Chipping Hill, ‘Georgian’ frontage), 37 Chipping Hill (late Victorian, left of telegraph pole), 39 Chipping Hill (all the rest). Number 39 has shop front and right-hand end, and was described by the RCHM in 1914 as a ‘house with shop (shoemaker and furniture)’.

The original RCHM Record Card for these buildings from 1914, contains rather more about their structure and history. They were Witham Monument 15. I think the cards may now be held by Historic England in Swindon.
