The Weald and Downland Museum

We recently spent a day at the Weald and Downland Museum in West Sussex where lots of old buildings have been transported and reconstructed in their original condition.  A lovely peaceful place and there is one cottage in particular (15th century) where we go and sit in front of the fire and pretend we could live there. 

My photos do not do justice to that dark old cottage, so instead here are pictures of a 19th century railway workers cottage very like my first little home in a terrace, even down to the rattling windows.  Mine was Edwardian.  The one at the museum dates from about 1880.
