Rubbish Tuesday 33

A new meme for me to play with. Now I have my blogging mojo back again, I'm roaring to go.

This shot is of the old house on our property.  The back wall of this old house was the front wall of the original old stone cottage built of the property. This  one was  still in use in the 1960s, but a newer house had been built in the late 1800s - our present house.  The boys of the family moved out to this old place because there was no room in the main house.

This shot was taken on a foggy morning.



This old cottage was built of cement and rubble and over the years has deteriorated badly. One wall has collapsed, the floors have rotted and the ceilings are collapsing from the weight of the pigeon droppings in them.  Still it is a picturesque addition to our back garden and I quite like it there.

    1. Too late for a 'fixer upper', Tom. We had it inspected by an architect and builder when we bought the property in 1970 and even then it was too late to save the structure/
