Jacobs Fold (previously Hawkins Cottage) is a cottage on Church Lane. It is currently the home of Charity Dingle and Vanessa Woodfield, their sons Noah, Moses and Johnny as well as Charity's granddaughter, Sarah and relative, Faith.

History Edit

The property was built in 1850 and was originally known as Hawkins Cottage but was renamed after the village chief farmer, Jacob Sugden, following his death in 1972. It was the home of the McAllister family from December 1993 to February 1995.

Pearl Ladderbanks resided there for many years and at some point bought the house from Eric Pollard. In late July 2007, Pearl along with Duke Woods, throws stones at Jacobs Fold and smash a window when Eric refuses to pay Pearl her wages. Eric calls the police and Pearl and Duke are arrested. In April 2015, when she finds herself in great debt after her gambling spirals out of control Pearl sells the house back to Eric in order to pay off debt. Eric soon rented the house to Kirin Kotecha for a few months but threw him out after he broke their rental agreement. 

It stood mostly vacant until October 2017 when the house was purchased at auction for £350,000 in by Joe Tate, going under the alias of Tom Waterhouse. He purchased the property and let his girlfriend Debbie Dingle move in along with her children, Sarah and Jack. In January the following year, Debbie found out about Tom's real identity and got evicted. As revenge, she and her mother Charity Dingle thrashed the house when they saw a real estate agent erecting a "To Let" sign. Charity even went as far as taking a dump in the house and writing an "i" in the middle of the sign so that it read "Toilet".

Less than six months later, Joe agreed to sell the property to Debbie for £300,000 but the paperwork was never finalized and it was soon revealed that Joe's former step-gran, Kim Tate actually owned the property so Debbie and her children were evicted by Kim's right hand Graham Foster in October 2018.

In January 2019, Debbie and her kids moved back in after she blackmailed Graham over his part in Joe’s presumed death. However, in August Debbie and Jack decided to move to Scotland, while Sarah wanted to stay behind. Subsequently, Debbie gave the place to Charity and her fiancee Vanessa Woodfield to look after Sarah, and they moved in along with their children Noah, Moses and Johnny.
