Peake's House stands in the Dutch Quarter, which has retained its old street plan. Originally three cottages and with Colchester being a centre of the cloth trade, they probably belonged to weavers, the long mullioned windows designed to give light to the men at their looms.
The satisfying late Elizabethan interiors of a prosperous merchant’s house provide a particularly atmospheric existence within its walls.
The Landmark Trust is opening Peake's House in association with Heritage Open Days.
