The Mud Cottage, Kibworth

Thank you to Jennifer Rogers of Husbands Bosworth who has kindly let me have this old postcard showing the High Street and the old mud-walled cottage on the right. The mud cottage with thatched roof was demolished around 1949/50. Such a sad loss of this charming piece of Kibworth’s history. The last occupant was Charlie Everitt and his son, Ted. All that remains to this day is the front wall of the old cottage. 

Jennifer is the great-granddaughter of George Lynn who, back in the early 1900s, owned the grocery shop on ‘The Bank’.
