This house was the first named the crooked cottage
. The Crooked Cottage Wilburton
I was born in Aldreth in 1915 so it must have been around 1920 when I first knew of the cottage. We always called it the crooked cottage ”, it is on the corner of Church Lane & Haddenham road Wilburton.
My Great Grandfather & Mother lived there & then my Grandfather Alfred Pledger & Grandmother Sally ( nee Croxon from Cottenham).
When Grandfather died around 1925 ,Uncle Will who never married ,moved in with his mother.When Grandmother died around 1928, Uncle Will had to move so came to our already overcrowded house at Bradfields Farm Aldreth. The is photo of Granny ,Sally Pledger, I never saw her in a hat, it was always a mans cap..The Crooked Cottage has been extented & renovated recenlly & is now called Fen Cottage , I believe.
