Historic dwelling
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 21:47 GMT (UK) »
I had to laugh.  My childhood home has been classified as a 'historic' residence.  Here's how it was when I lived there in about 1950.  That's my mother telling me to hurry up.

Here's me outside my first home - not so posh as yours.

We lived in this for four years, I have good memories of heading straight out into the adjoining forest to collect bedding for our pet rabbit. After that it was a house, not half so much fun.

I love both these, our Family home is now and industrial estate sadly. Thanks for sharing Erato and Mike.
Erato, that looks a lovely place to live with plenty of open space to enjoy the outdoors.
Mike, what a great way start to your early years in outdoors too. It could do with a bit of a freshen up so get working on it, or, put up for us to give it a refurb  ;)

Wow....the wild life sounds amazing, glad the land isn't suitable for building on, the trend these days is to build on every available green belt  :-\   No wonder we have so many flooded areas these days, the UK is sinking under the weight of concrete  :-\

Have any of you been back to see where you grew up? I have, but only if we want to change the car or get caravan accessories  ;D

Looks amazing - and probably quite influencing for your future life.
