This is my first post here, so I hope I have done it right...
I discovered this beautiful cottage last summer, purely accidentally.
A good friend of mine is a gamekeeper on a large estate on Anglesey.
I was asked for help, to prepare some pens for when the pheasants arrived.
And to my utter delight, I found this completely overgrown and unlived in since the 1960's.

Thats super
Sadly that one is beyond redemption :(.
I am currently restoring this one, from 1946, to full working order, (bought on eBay, not scavenged, I hasten to add!)

Great to see the photos, Rosemary. Out of interest, do you know why the estate have let the cottage get into such disrepair?

Great little find Rosemary. Hope someone buys it and falls in love with it and saves it from getting demolished. It may have some historical significanceame
