Mid 19th-century Chartist cottage

This red-brick cottage remains largely unchanged since it was first occupied by early Chartists. The Victoria era was a time of remarkable British political change, which is brought back to life at Rosedene.

An organic garden and orchard, full of seasonal fruit and vegetables, flourishes at the back of the house. This plot of land would have originally been allocated to the first occupants of the house for cultivation to supplement their diet and income.
