Lilliput Lane's "Cookery Nook" is based on Orchard End, OX33 1JU  [IoE 246738]

Notes from the current (Nov 2007) Owner:

"The cottage can be traced back to 1275 and was a medieval hall originally. It is grade II* listed building putting in the top 6% of all listed buildings (grade 1 and grade 2*) and South Oxfordshire District Council said it is the 6th oldest inhabited cruck construction house in England....don't know how much truth there is to that....maybe for its particular construction.
We bought it 1 year ago and only just got planning permission to renovate it as it hadn't been touched for 50 years. Much of the main fabric of the building has been replaced and added to over the years but the cruck beams are still there and are still holding the place up!
3 families lived there until the 50s!"

As you can see from the pictures above it was in the process of being re-thatched when I passed by on November 20, 2007


Camilla Cottage is opposite [IoE 246731]
