"Little Thatch is said to have been two cottages that were converted into one. We were told originally that there was a third cottage on the end that burned down in the late 17th century, but we have no evidence of this. However there is definitive evidence of it being two cottages due to photographs which show two chimney stacks and lots of proof inside the dwelling.
It is said that before it was transformed into dwellings it was a “Fire Hall”: a place where members of the community could come and sit around a large fire pit that was situated in the middle of the floor. English heritage say there is evidence of this due to the blackening of the roof structure timbers which have made completely of trees! The samples appear to go with the theory, hence it was then listed in 2004. The cottage has a date apparently of the15th century. We have been told that a dwelling existed in the exactly same location in the 13th century, however no one appears to know if it is the same cottage.
A lady knocked on our door in July last year who, as a young girl, lived in the cottage. She claims that there is a well in the middle of the lounge floor. This lady lives in Australia and claims that the picture hanging in the pub of “The Lads of the Village" is also hanging in the Sydney Opera House.
Thomas Coombes, one of the men from this photo is said to have lived in Little Thatch.
The track that runs up between the mill and Little Thatch is said to have been the main road into Yeovil. At the end of the track there is evidence of a small dwelling believed to have been used by the village Smithy. The foundations can still be seen. (There is a picture of this in the school, and on the Facebook page.)"
