Have you got a connection to our terrace of houses?
Do you have a connection to The Weaver’s House or its immediate neighbours?
The six cottages of Black Swan Terrace were built as one structure in 1455, and all, including The Weaver’s House, are managed by our trust: Spon End Building Preservation Trust.
We have produced a number of publications about the history of the building, and are currently in the process of updating the booklet Who Lived in Black Swan Terrace?
We’re interested to hear from anyone who has a connection to one of the cottages, whether you remember shopping, working or living here, or had a relative who did.
We’re very lucky to have a volunteer, Clare, who is a descendant of one of the previous residents who is passionate about family history. Clare has researched the other families who lived in the terrace and we would love to bring their stories to life and fill in any gaps in time for the next edition of our family history booklet, Who Lived in Black Swan Terrace?”
The terrace, which was rescued from demolition in the 1990s, starts at 119, and the end building, with its green tiles and ‘Moira’s Wet Fish’ painted shop sign, is a local landmark.
If you would like to contribute information please email Clare Chamberlain on firstname.lastname@example.org. To allow time to include it in the next edition, the deadline is October 18 2019, although information at any time is always very welcome.
