Sheredays

By Jim Devlin

Originally a 16th century timber farmhouse, Cleerhall, encased in brick in the 18th century. George Fitz-George, the illegitimate son of George IV, drowned in the pond at the back in 1819 whilst at the boys academy in this building. Known as Sheredays, Dr. Frederick Carter lived and practiced here in the late 19th century and was succeeded in the 20th century by Dr. J.D. Wells.

The premises now functions as a Health & Beauty Clinic.
