On the northside of Sion Hill road is No. 27, “Gothic Cottage.” “A pretty cottage orné of 1797, is unusual for its eclectic mix of Gothick and classical, and its Flemish bond brick construction. A later hip-roofed len-to runs across the entire front. James Dredge, engineer and designer of the Victoria Bridge, lived here in the” mid-nineteenth century.
–Michael Forsyth, Bath (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2003), 169.
