Damp proofing to Pest house in Putney

Recently completed damp proofing to a beautiful cottage in Putney. Built in the 1860’s these cottages were built as labourers houses on the land belonging to the pest house charity. Most likely dating back to The Great Plague of London 1665-1666 where ‘pest’ houses were built to house those affected by the plague hence there name ‘pest’ houses shorten from pestilence, the term for a fatal epidemic disease particularly bubonic plague.
