Bricked-Up Fireplaces Facing Outwards On The Chimney Stack At Virginia Cottage, 191 Boreham Road, Warminster - Evidence That There Was Once An Adjacent Cottage

Thursday 7th June 2018:

 The chimney stack on the west-facing end 
wall of Virginia Cottage, 191 Boreham Road, 
Warminster, features two bricked-up fireplaces 
facing outwards (ground floor and first floor)
- evidence that there once was a cottage 
adjacent No.191, between it and Grange Lane.

 Ground floor.

 Danny Howell writes:
It is known that in the days when Grange Lane
was known as Parsonage Lane, there were
two cottages on the corner of Boreham Road
and Parsonage Lane that were destroyed by
a fire. We may presume that the two 
blocked-up fireplaces facing outwards from 
the west wall of Virginia Cottage
are perhaps the only remaining evidence
of the two neighbouring cottages that burnt down.
I think I'm right in saying that the
deeds of Virginia Cottage mention the
two other cottages and the fire.
