About this object

Photograph, Untitled [Fyffe House]; a black and white photograph of Fyffe House, taken from the south-west. This image depicts the house around the 1960-1970 period.

Fyffe House began life as a two-roomed cottage, built for Robert Fyffe’s cooper, Thomas Howell. A two-storeyed wing was added at a later date, and is thought to have been constructed in preparation for George Fyffe’s marriage to Catherine Fyfe in 1860. By the 1960s/70s the house had passed through several hands, and was now owned and occupied by George Low. The Low family had been resident at Fyffe House since about the 1920s.
