Thatched cottage

An idyllic rural scene. One of the thatched cottages in Styal village, built for the workers at Quarry Bank Mill in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Apologies for my not commenting on friends' CPD blogs at present.

  1. It was built during the 18th century? Wow! It’s amazing that it still stands firm despite its old age. I didn’t know that thatched roofing can last that long. That is a priceless structure that has withstood the test of time and has witnessed all kinds of historical events. It should be considered a national treasure.
