Church Farm Museum 1/10

The Village Church Farm, formerly known as Church Farm Museum, is an open-air museum of local and agricultural history near Skegness where there are a number of traditional indigenous buildings, including a thatched cottage, moved from the nearby village of Withern, the original 18th-century farmhouse, a 19th-century stable block and a 19th-century cowshed. Withern cottage is an example of a Lincolnshire ‘Mud and Stud’ thatched cottage and its simple furnishings give an insight into the living conditions of a farm labourer in the late 18th.century. Oh and it also had an outside privy at the bottom of the garden, see the inset!

Very Hansel & Gretel, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Almost but not quite. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.
There is so much to take in with this presentation Brian... i love the thatched cottage... the couples outhouse looks like a good idea on a cold winter's night... the letterbox is worth at least two stars ** ....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes a very interesting cottage altogether. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.
Lovely image - I like the bright white house against that gorgeous sky!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.

I guess down here it would be made of wattle and daub, Brian
Brian Walbey: yes it was that sort of construction Lisl. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.
AND don't forget the red, iconic mailbox, Brian. grin
Brian Walbey: I just had to include that Ginnie.

These days it all looks charming Brian but back a couple of centuries ago a walk to the privy on a cold wet night must have not been so pleasant
Brian Walbey: There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting. We had an outside privy till I was about 10 years old.

More English you cannot get... a wonderful red mailbox, the amazing thatch on the roof, the white walls and the double seated outhouse.... grin...
Wonderful picture!!!
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it Astrid. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.
I imagine it was much more squalid than this lovely choccie box restoration Brian.
Brian Walbey: Dirt floors and whattle and daub construction. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.

What a cosy, sweet little English house, a Häusle (in German)!

The cottage is a beauty!

Nice insert touches....beeautiful leading lines.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie.
It looks as if this place is worth a visit Brian.
Brian Walbey: The museum doesn't cover a lot of ground but they have some interesting things there.
A tidy little cottage!
Brian Walbey: I bet it wasn't the best of places to live in back in the old days though. There was an elderly gentleman of about 85 there who actually grew up in this cottage and he spent quite a long time telling us all about what it was like to live in, he was so interesting.
