Rous Cottage

Unfortunately Rous Cottage no longer serves as a sweet shop for users of The Common.

An untimely death occurred here in 1899 when the wife of Samuel Crozier of The Admiral Rous Inn was murdered by being pushed downstairs and was buried in the churchyard. Subsequent rumours led to the disinterment of her body and the arrest of her husband who was tried, convicted of her murder and finally executed at Chelmsford prison on 5th December 1899.
