Moravian Cottages

About Us

The cottages appear to date from the 1780s. The style is quasi-vernacular reflecting their location in what would have been at that time a rural situation nearer to Weston village than thecity of Bath.

A connection with the Moravian church appears to have followed shortly afterwards
when the cottages were acquired in order to provide a burial ground on land at the rear.

The cottages are thought to have been sold away at the beginning of the 20th century. The submitted heritage statement draws attention to various alterations that took place after that time, including the construction of a rear extension in the middle of the 20th century.

The existing rear extension and the rear wall of the cottage are suffering structural movement which is attributed to the presence of nearby trees. The opportunity is therefore being taken to improve the functionality and design of the rear extension. There is no fundamental objection to the demolition of the 1950s extension.
