SHEPRETH DUNSBRIDGE TURNPIKE TL 34 NE (South east side) 7/308 Halfway House II

Cottage, formerly a public house. Probably built after 1823 and before 1844. Timber framed, roughcast rendered and long straw thatch with ridge and end stack. Lobby entry plan. One storey and attic. Three dormers. Three horizontal sliding sashes. Two similar windows on either side of a gabled porcn. This part of the village was settled probably in the C18 and away from the village nucleus. It may be associated with the development of the Cambridge-Royston road, which was turnpiked in 1793.
