The grade 2 listed building ‘Swiss Cottage’ damaged by the fire in 7Bone Burger Restaurant, Portwood Rd, on 8 July 2022

A couple of our followers have pointed out that while most of the coverage of the fire at 7Bone Burger Restaurant in Portswood Road on the evening of 8 July 2022 focused naturally, and understandably, on the restaurant, there was also extensive fire damage to the grade 2 listed building ‘Swiss Cottage’ which is just behind it / adjoinng it.

The Daily Echo reported on 10 July 2022 that “this building is of significant heritage value and the fire crew were able to confine the fire spread to the roof space, saving many important architectural features”.

To find out more about this Grade 2 listed building, we asked SEE Southampton if they knew any of the history/background to this now very sad, forlorn looking building. The response was immediate – here below. Thank you SEE Southampton!
