Ketley Cottage

This is home in the UK.  The oldest part of the cottage (the two left-hand bays) was originally built in around 1520.  The entire house was dismantled when the local reservoir at Bewl Water was flooded.  It was then re-erected on the current site in Cousley Wood in 1980.  The garage/workshop in the foreground was originally the Cousley Wood village forge.

There's more detail on the history of the cottage, based on a piece of work by the local archeological society under the history button above (text only - no pictures).  There's also a gallery of thumbnails under the pictures button.
