ZION HILL COTTAGE, TISBURY

This cottage is in Cuffs Lane just below the Zion Hill Chapel. Rebecca Dicker, daughter of James Rixon the stonemason, is standing in the doorway with her son, Charlie. Notice the many heads carved by James Rixon, who had lived there previously with his wife Isabella and ten children. In the 1930s the ivy was ripped from the front of the cottage and heads rolled away down the hill.
