One of 40 similar Chartist houses in Dodford built mainly on four-acre plots by
the Chartist Land Company. As on other Chartist estates each small-holding was
intended to provide its occupant with an independent livelihood and the opportunity
to qualify for a County vote. This example is notable for the survival of its
rear service and out-buildings. (W Bond, From Hamlet to Parish, 1972).
