Sweet William Stagsden Private Dwelling L2046 Jan 97 

Mar 98

Joel Cottage, High Street N52.1295 W0.5679 37251
Lilliput Lane's "Sweet William" is based on the left hand end of Joel Cottage in the High Street (South side) [IoE 37251]
When we visited on February 9, 2006 we found it in a terrible state of repair' Lathe & Plaster were visible and large areas were protected with sheets of chipboard -- hardly appropriate for a Grade II listed building.
But when John revisited on January 26, 2007 the roof had been re-thatched and there were signs of further renewal
I revisited April 6, 2010............. not a lot of difference !!
......and again on March 27, 2013 --- some improvements but still work going on!
Another cottage in High Street Stagsden Voluntary Primary School, High Street [IoE 37252]
