c 1850Tudor HouseTudor House, Rotherfield by UnknownWilliam KingOur Village
The Post Office and Tudor House were occupied in the 19th century by a Mr King and was a considerable emporium purveying all manner of goods including groceries, wines, furniture, drapery and times pieces of every description. The canopied forecourt is a delightful nostalgic reminder of times long past.
