My wife's family the Oldcorns live in this end house and our friend Collin Parington also lives on this row. Posted Dec 2010, hasn't changed for a hundred years.

This is the cottage where my maternal grandfather's family used to live.  Thomas (born 1828) and Mary Hadwin had 12 children and lived all of their life in this house.  Their granddaughter "Carrie", born in 1877, lived there with them, too.  I'm yet to discover if the house was occupied by the Hadwins previously.
