Subject – Sewage Farm Cottages

Date – 2005

Donor – RogersStan

Street – Barnfield Close

Location – Barnfield Close

Additional Info – These cottages were built for the workers on the Local Board Sewage Farm. This was previously Even Swindon Farm before being purchased by the New Swindon Local Board in 1871. A strange fact is that the elevation of the cottages shown was originally the back. When Barnfield close was built then the front entrances were made to the rear elevation.  Note:- The above information given about the orientation of the cottages was incorrect.  See comment from Jo Smedley below.
