    My house was built in 1874.

    In 1939 there was a guy named Hubert Griffiths living there. He worked in a flour mill and his daughter was disabled.  - The things you find out hey... Incredible!

    We found out from the paperwork detailing the neighbouring cottage's right of access for bins around a little path on ours, that the people who lived in the cottages at the time were called Mr Pout and Mr Gammon! Very funny to us. 

    The house we've just bought is from 1910, or perhaps a bit earlier. The flat we're still renting for another month or two is from the 1980s, it's ex-council.

    But its good to know that something has come out of the new forum...the loss of the min 10 character answer.
    But I can only get 10 comments a page now. Am I stuck with that or can I change it? It's annoying.

    1925 Sort of mixture between tudorbethan and arts and crafts.  It had a kitchen, scullery, larder and morning room when built. It now just has a large kitchen.
