Looking across the south front of the former Wealden house on the western edge of Kevingtown hamlet

Description

The photographer's notes state: 'Westernmost block. The central & west parts of the south front. The westerly dwelling on left up to the bay'.

The building was originally a 17th century, timber framed Wealden house but the ground floor has since been rebuilt in brick. By the 20th century it had been divided into two cottages.

The cottages are now named 1 Kevington Cottages (on the left side of the building) and Oak Cottage (on the right). It is unclear, however, whether the two cottages had been named as such at the time the photograph was taken, or whether that happened later.
