Court House Barcombe East Sussex

I was evacuated here during WWII. Matron Iris Braby in charge. I remember hunting for dyed easter eggs in the garden and being taken for walks down Stella's Lane (Stella was a cow that was tethered there).

Nine Acres Betchworth Surrey

The listed building description of this building is woefully inadequate. This building is a 5 bay. mid smoke bay cottage built around C1580. It would originally had wattle and daub panel infill and not the brick noggin seen here today, and almost certainly have been thatched.

Beehive Cottage Wellingore Lincolnshire

I like the way the later extensions on each end of the property are in brick, this not only enhances the limestone of the original cottage but also allows the student to read its history more easily than if they had been built of matching stone!

Interestingly The National Archives mention several times that this house was used as a Solicitors issuing leases and mortgages on 'measures' of land amongst other things. Dates of 1769 and others can be seen.
