Property Description

House History

The house is early Victorian and was commissioned in 1850 by John Milburn, a local iron founder and property and land owner. During the years as a residential property the house had a governess and a number of servants. The servant stairs have been removed but the servant bells have been reinstated, providing a reminder of the property's status through time. In the 1920s, the property became council offices and records show that part of the property was used as a bath house where locals would come for a bath and rent a towel. It was also at the centre of the community during the Second World War and there is a photo of the ARP wardens at the front of the house (see pictures).
