Former estate cottages, Main Street, Scraptoft
Former estate cottages, Main Street, Scraptoft
Extended at both sides in the early 21st century. The initials LinkExternal link on the cottage possibly refer to the Hartopp family who were associated with Scraptoft Hall.

Credit to the architect responsible; unlike most modern pastiche of traditional design, where stretcher bond brickwork is a give-away of the newness, here care has been taken to reproduce the proper Flemish bond pattern, even though the 'headers' are probably only a half brick deep.

There is a bench mark LinkExternal link just to the left of the passage under the building.
