Benger Trails
Barrett Lane and the Thatched Cottages

The majority of houses in Sutton Benger looked like No 62 High Street at one time. The 1920 Auction catalogue tells us that just 100 years ago there were many more thatched houses in the village than today. Barrett Lane and the houses in this area have several stories to tell.

The sepia photograph / postcard of 'Thatched Cottages, Sutton Benger' was taken from the end of Sutton Lane, next to Forge Cottage, looking north towards the cottages on the other side of the High Street. The cottage that can be seen is No 62 High Street.
