only has the name thatch cottage although i did find out that it was called Durringmere cottage,but someone changed it in the 60's.we do have some old photo's of it which are wonderful,when it was just a lane with wild flowers growing both sides. there is a lot of interest in what we are doing to the cottage by everyone all around as it was in a very bad way,we have had it rethatched and are busy clearing years of overgrowth everywhere.we have had it rumoured that it is mentioned in the doomsday book,as a woodsman hovel!do you know anything about this ?

Hello Susanne, sorry I don't have any info on the cottage,but I remember catching tadpoles in a jamjar from the little stream.we lived in Greenland road and a friend of my parents lived right at end of pond lane and he was a gamekeeper.I would be talking about the 50s.
Happy days,a wonderful village to grow up in
Good luck with the cottage.
