HISTORY
Bozeat is a small village located approximately 6 miles south of Wellingborough in Northamptonshire. It is believed to date back to Saxon times as remains of an ancient Saxon burial ground have been found, along with coins and other artefacts of the time. The Great Fire of Bozeat destroyed the majority of the village in 1729. No. 29 Mile Street was built a few years after the fire as a replacement dwelling or rebuild of a burnt-out ruin. The datestone suggests it dates from 1731, but has been subject to various alterations, most noticeably the fenestration on its principal elevation, and rebuilding of the chimney stacks. No. 29 Mile Street was originally listed in 1972 as No. 31.
