Allen's Cottages

Snowdrops are one of the first signs of Spring, emerging from the frozen soil from January until around late February. Primroses are also synonymous with Spring and can bloom from early February and then throughout March and April. During the 1960s bunches of primroses, serving as a spring gift from Devon, were  distributed by Stowford Paper Mill to customers all over Britain.

The row of ten cottages in Fore Street were built by John Allen in the 1860s for workers at his paper mill.
