& O'Connerville








112   Rose Cottage, Herongate. In 1846 Feargus O'Connor began to construct this first Chartist settlement on the fields of Herongate Farm, providing small holdings, each with a two-storey house. Plot 26 was allocated to Martin Griffiths of Worcestershire. He was one of the original allottees and his family was one of very few to stay and farm the land successfully.
