27 Meeting Street, Quorn

Part of the present building was erected in 1650 and was at right angles to the street. There is a half cruck in an upper room. The gable end is steep and when the chimney was renovated, remains of thatch were discovered. Earliest records state 'for many years past it was occupied and formerly in the tenure of Thomas Chapman and afterwards Joseph Chapman, James Sculthorpe, Richard Sarson, Thomas Hind, George Snowden and George Sanders' The latter, joiner and undertaker, came there in 1832, and later John Sanders emigrated to Canada in 1920. There followed Mr Fewkes and then the Wrights who bought it in 1939 as a boarding house for women drafted to work in the mills during the second World War. From 1945 the building was used as flats until it was bought as a family home in 1972.
