Belleville in the snow
Belleville in the snow
Built about 1840 on the site of an earlier cottage shown on Bowra's map of 1738. Thackeray describes a house on the Common near Rock Villa in which he stayed as a child in 1823; this has been identified with Belleville but was more likely Gibraltar, the only one of the three rock built cottages at the apex of the Common known to have been used as a lodging house at that date.
