THE SMALLEST HOUSE
Les Auld (Occasional Images) featured a picture of this tiny house in January. Situated in the town of Conwy (Conway) in North Wales I am seen standing outside with a couple of ladies who are dressed in traditional Welsh Costume. I am looking considerably younger in this picture so it must have quite a while ago.
The house named in the Guinness Book of Records as The Smallest House in Great Britain, with dimensions of 3.05 metres x 1.8 metres, can be found on the quay. It was in continuous occupation from the 16th century (and was even inhabited by a family at one point) until 1900 when the owner a (6 ft fisherman – Robert Jones) was forced to move out on the grounds of hygiene. The rooms were too small for him to stand up in fully. The house is still owned by his descendants today, and you can go on a tour around it for a small charge.
