a lovely old building hiding a multitude of uses. I was privileged to be shown around as part of a tour organised by BGAS and hosted by HOTS. I particularly liked the old passageway through, you could feel the age in the stonework and woodwork.
The name Norteland was in use in 1560.
Northland Cottage is situated on the main London Road out of Tetbury. In 1841 it was called Northland Lodge and was inhabited by an agricultural labourer Thomas Still and his family.
By 1851 John Large, another agricultural labourer was living there with his family.
In 1861 there are two households there, with the name changed to cottage - had the original lodge been converted into two homesteads? John Large in one, and a widow, Charlotte Timings in the other, with her sisters Eloise (or Eliza?), Frances and sister in law, Harriet. The Large family were in possession of a cottage, and Mrs Timings a house, garden and land. The landlord was John Cook snr.
John Large was still at the cottage in 1881.
Charlottes' father lived in Charlton Kings, which is where she and her sisters lived in 1851. By 1881 she and Frances were living in lodgings in Cheltenham and they both died there in 1886 (Frances aged 90) and 1891 (Charlotte aged 87).

The Old Coach House
built around 1870 alongside the large family house next door, both to take advantage of the forthcoming railway line to the Bath Road that never materialised.
The Old Toll House
6 Bath Road
This cottage apparently built c1750-60 but the architectural character appears to be rather later. The road was turnpiked in 1743 but the new bridge built in 1775 must have made the use of this cottage rather difficult and it was superceded in 1821. It is unusual to have two toll houses surviving so close to each other but local rumour says that to avoid the tolls people were cutting through what is now Berrells Road and down Cutwell. The new toll house was built opposite this turning so hoping that the toll avoiders would be caught and duly charged!
