    Default A very Royal Cottage, South Wales


    Not posted on here for a while for reasons I won't bore you with (haha!), so have a little backlog to upload when I got time. Will start with this nice little rural cottage that I visited with Jon6D. There was three mini-explores in one at this site as you'll see in the photos - the cottage, a crushed caravan (by a tree) and a shed that had piles of plates stamped with either ER or Crown underneath (all dated from the 1950s, 60s and 70s (hence why Jon named this place the Royal cottage)). I took many photos of the plates with a view of researching their value..... but that didn't happen, wish I had ...... as I could be writing this post from the Bahamas right now ha!

    Unfortunately I am unable to find any history for this one. The visit was back in mid 2016, and I've recently drove down this lane and could not spot the house so am sadly assuming it no longer exists? But not 100% sure about that as I drove it in the dark. Anyway, hope you enjoy......

    Thank you smiler. Remarkably very little damage to the dinner service which is what is great about stumbling across rural places. If this was near a town it wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes!

    Nicely done. The two Avo Meters are looking in good condition. Once you've finished your meal just chuck the plate away - saves having to wash-up.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
