Old Cottages

July 19th 2012 Vancouver Canada Oh ! My god what a shock I was evacuated to Horningsham in 1941 to live with my mother's aunt Jessie and her husband Billy. He had been gassed in WW1 and worked on the Longleat Estate as a gardener, but I cannot remember their surname. I could not stand living with them and spent most of my time with the Ford family and eventually moved in with them. I am sure it they lived in the cottage on the right of the photo. Jessie and Billy lived in some old estate cottages which are no longer there. No running water, no inside toilet, she was a terrible cook and very srtict - they had no children of their own. I went back in 1973 and found the old village water pump at the corner ...Read full memory

History

This row of three cottages is in Church Street. They are set slightly below road level, and are reached by steps down. The thatch remains in excellent condition, and so do the porches. The picket fence has been extended to replace the hedging. Horningsham is a beautiful village, still retaining an almost feudal air.
