Having lived in Tuckmill Cottage, Victor Paget explored some of its history and carried out some minor excavations. He then wrote up a potted history shortly before his death. This A5 Booklet, written in 1983, can be read at the Centre or downloaded. A word of caution though. The historical information in Victor's booklet is not accurate but his own excavations make for interesting reading.

The lovely water-colour painting may be viewed at the Centre in C1.SHR.3.0.3
Further information has been discovered (2016) which confirms that there was an entire farm at the location of Tuckmill. This will be added to this listing shortly.
