Early 19th cent building, with an extension about 1900; mid 20th cent conversion to hotel with a conservatory added in modern times.
For many years, Uplands was run as a guest house and it did not become a licensed hotel until 1964. It appears not to be a hotel now (just called Uplands House, with no obvious hotel signage).
Elizabeth Garrett Anderson lived in this building between 1841 and 1852. She was the first woman in Britain to qualify as a physician and was also the first female mayor. It was also the birthplace of leading Suffragist Millicent Fawcett (nee Garrett).
