The cottage here is the original cottage attached to the Ratte and Kett yeard. It seems in 1917 to have still been leased by Susan Elizabeth Kett from Jesus College although she had lived for several years with her daughter and son-in-law. In the photo of Sattion Road, Poplar Cottage is on the right hand edge.

This fire insurance certificate seems very likely to be that for Poplar Cottage.

Poplar Cottage was demolished in 1960.
