Former Chartist Land Company cottages at Snigs End, Staunton
The Chartist estate at Snigs End extended to over 268 acres around the village of Staunton and was built between 1847 and 1851. The 81 plot development included cottages to a common design (as seen here), a schoolhouse and a network of roads and pathways. The original settlers won their cottage with a 3 or 4 acre plot through a lottery and were provided with supplies of manure, firewood and seed. In 1848, the third National Chartist petition was taken to Parliament on a cart made at Snigs End and pulled by Snigs End horses. The "colonies" were declared illegal by a House of Commons Select Committee in 1851 and the properties sold off. Their founding light, Feargus O'Connor, died shortly after declared a lunatic.
