Three Bears Cottage, Green Lane

Three Bears Cottage, Green Lane

Tim Corbishley Collection

At the time this photograph was taken - around the turn of the twentieth century - the cottage would not have been surrounded by woodland as it is now. It would, instead, have been on the edge of the open Woodcote Common, with its water supply coming from the nearby Greenmoor Ponds.The cottage does not appear to have had a name then: "Three Bears" is a later creation.
