English / Poplar Cottage

Poplar Cottage, probably the home of a landless labourer dating from the mid 17th century. It is an important example of the transition from open hall house such as Bayleaf to houses with chimneys such as Pendean.  Poplar has a 'smoke bay' an early form of chimney. 
It is a wonderful venue for drama.
