House has been like this for years and has now been cordoned off.Good restoration project !! The picture of the window shows cats who obviously find it a good home.The house is in a village in Willersley ,Herefordshire (UK). I guess it dates from around the 15th century.If there is any Hog out there from this part of England and can fill me in on the history I would be grateful

At least the cats have somewhere to get out of the weather.

This house has intrigued me for years so I will try to find out its history although I suspect this will not be easy.In Wales we have a museum of Welsh Life where derelict buildings from all over Wales are carefully dismantled,every stone or brick numbered, moved to the museum and reconstructed. In the south of England there is a similar museum.This house is surrounded by villages with houses of this period and the tourist board show a trail by road around the villages especially for tourists. The removal of houses for restoration is ,I believe, very complex and I agree no place should be left to deteriorate in this way. Thanks for your interest

Hi Fizzog. This is the Downland
museum in West Sussex you talk about and I have added the web site for you to have a look at. Good luck with your research I look forward to the outcome?

Had I been around in July I would have loved to catch up with you and have a pint, but I will be in Jersey for most of it.

Great images. Too bad it's in such disrepair. It was probably a nice home in the past.

HiGWR..Would just mention Jersey was also part of my area and went there usually every six weeks, needless to say I had a good stock of spirits in the house. Have a good time
