UK Cairn Cottages, Scotland - Sept 15

Recommended Posts

This quick selection of pics is from a recent trip into the mountains near where I live to visit some lovely cottages.  These locations are all within close proximity to each other so makes for a nice day out.

 

First stop was an old school, which was half converted into a house, but never quite got finished and sits quietly at the side of the road.

Next up, a good few minutes walk away was this old cottage which was well set off the road, but sadly very negligated, so much so it was filled with sheep shit half way up the door, but what a view!

The Straw Cottage, lying quietly down a old foresty road, ground floor was full to the ceiling with straw bales, but the first floor held some nice pieces of furniture.

The last stop just up the road in a very overgrown cottage, I thought it would be pretty rubbish, but I was pleasantly surprised!

So there you go four fairly average cottages, but all very lovely in their own way!

 

Thanks for looking!

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Brick production at the Clock House Brickworks dates back to 1933 when the Clock House Brick Company Ltd was founded to exploit a rich seam of Weald Clay that had been discovered.  By 1941 the original company entered into liquidation due to the war effort and the lack of need for the hollow-block ceramics they were producing. A share of the company was sold to the London Brick Company, who in 1945 eventually purchased the company to avoid a full closure.  Production was vastly increased, in part to the housing boom of the 50’s, and during the 60’s the site was rebuilt to cope with the increased demand.  The London Brick Company was acquired by Hanson PLC in the 1980’s and the works was refitted. In 1998, Clockhouse Bricks were used by three major exhibitors in that year’s Ideal Home Show and in 2000, Clock House was said to be Hanson Brick’s main soft mud production site, producing around 42 million bricks per year
