Haslingfield: bakehouse and privy at Wellhouse Meadow
Haslingfield: bakehouse and privy at Wellhouse Meadow
Wellhouse Meadow is one of only two remaining fragments of Haslingfield's Saxon Great Green. It was acquired by the Parish Council in 1976, to be kept as a public amenity in perpetuity. The bakehouse and privy were moved from their original site between High Street and School Lane and rebuilt in 2005. The nearby information board explains that they were low-cost early 19th-century buildings of local brick and "clay lumps" made from subsoil mixed with straw. The oven was fired with hawthorn faggots.
