The Cottage, Little East Street


A photo from the vantage point of the Bartholomew steps avoids parallax distortion. "The Cottage" was built in the late 1700's and the two ground floor bay windows and lean-to roof were added c.1900. The obscured bay to the left of the door is triangular. The front wall is of pitch-painted flint cobbles with painted brick quoins. It was grade II listed in 1971. The period lampost to the left is at the entrance to the twitten made famous by the film  'Quadrophenia'. It adds a pleasing visual punctuation to the scene.
