Cottage Farm was sometimes marked ’Farm Cottage’ on maps

This farm on Wrythe Lane was opposite the current Connaught Road and demolished in the late 1930s. During the 19th century, it was the home of Charles Simms, a lavender grower who brought up a family of six children there. Two of the children - Joseph and Charles - also became lavender growers. A road nearby is named after the Simms family - Simms Close.

Lavender was a ’medical herb’ and often grown along with mint.

At the very end of the farm’s life, some lavender was still grown, but the main crop had become vegetables. Cottage Farm was managed at its end by Luther Ansell, on behalf of the Carter family.
