Main Street - Bucks Lane
Sutton Bonington
England

This building was probably built about 1650. The upper door in the side elevation would have opened into a loft for storage. There is a story that this house was once considered as a home for Charles-Marie Bonaparte, father of Napoleon, after the failure of an uprising in Corsica.
