Boxall Cottages on Ham Common


The rather attractive Boxall Cottages overlook Ham Common from the north-west side.

The cottages are some way back from the main part of the Common, behind both the main road and the slip road, and are a little lower than the Common too so I suspect that the view from the cottages do not quite live up to the location. There is no problem with the views of the cottages though.

  1. Were the Bow windows a more modern alteration? It looks like a distinctive brick work line above the frames as though they have been the replacments

    1. There is a book on the history of these cottages and others nearby but while I have a copy I have not read it (!) but I agree with your observation.

  2. Are Boxhall Cottages still there?

    1. Absolutely! The picture was taken just over ten years ago and that side of the Common has hardly altered since then.
