    Arrow Cotes Cottage, Cambridgeshire. Summer & Winter!


    I went here in the summer but didnít think it was worth a report, but this week I went back to see the place in the snow.

    I cant find much history on the place, it just sits there in the countryside deteriorating.

    I found a bundle of confidential paperwork. The weird thing is, I now work with the guy who this is addressed to!

    Delightful cottage and fabulous pics...I love the way you've compared summer with winter shot for shot.
    Very nice work, UrbX. :)

    I come from the west country and I can drive a tractor.

    Weird thing about that sofa....
    When I first went to this site I had a nightmare that night about finding a body on the sofa, all carved up. The next day I made myself go back alone to check that nothing was there, just to put my fears at rest. I knew if I didn't I'd always have a fear of the place.
    When I walked in, alone, only 12 or so hours later I found the sofa all carved up with an axe sitting on top. It still sends shivers down my spine thinking about it.
