Hi all,

I am new to the site but thought I would start posting some of the visits I have made over the last 6 months. First off is this site that seems to have just 1 main part of the building left (google maps shows it used to be a bigger site).

A little history - The Hamilton family lived at Fairfield from around 1850 until 1930 - including Alexander Abercromby Hamilton and the Revd. Robert Abercromby Hamilton so it goes back a bit. Fairfield is also called Fairfield Lodge, so you have the situation where Fairfield Lodge is the main house and that has a lodge at the end of the drive called Fairfield Lodge which I think is all that is left now. Info taken says that the Cottage was one of several properties damaged during enemy action in June 1941. It is recorded in the book "Fire on the Wind" which you can obtain at the City Library.

Anyway as below:-
