Blakes Cottage

History and Heritage | Bognor Regis

Description

Blakes’s Cottage is where William Blake lived from 1800 to 1803.  Blake is famous for his poems including Milton and Jerusalem which went on to become a national favourite in England.  The house is of Grade II listed status and in recent years has been the subject of restoration work which in itself has been controversial.   This is one of only two of the nine properties where Blake lived that have survived today.  The cottage is very close to several local pubs, the nearest one being just across the road – The Fox which was named after a ship!
