Thatched Cottage, Brotton

A further thatched cottage, believed to be close to the Ship Inn (on the rear part of Brotton High Street) and behind the present day Spar convenience store. It is believed that the thatched cottage is no more; having been replaced by a two storey Victorian brick building. The image when it came to the Archive did not have the details as listed on the image (‘SEE BACK’), so any additional information about the building or dating would be very welcome. Julie Riddiough has advised the Archive: ” The building to the right on the picture was The Shoemakers Arms”. Bill Danby (whilst conducting other researches) has advised the Archive of an entry for Skelton and Brotton District Council that on 6th July 1934 – demolition of 129 High Street, Brotton; Thatched Cottage.
