I really didn’t know what to expect from this one, I was in the area doing a couple of other places, I had an inkling there was something in the woods having seen an obvious derp on google earth; there was no street view as it was off all roads I approached down an overgrown muddy path between fields.

Joy of joys an abandoned car and cottage awaited me.

The further in I went the better it got, so much treasure, (I’m not a pirate, but the word Treasure sits perfectly in my mindset). Yes kids music did exist before Spotify, iTunes et al!
Angela was quite a collector of books and an obvious avid reader. Finding some photographs through her ages, she seems a glamorous and quite attractive lady, so sad to think she died alone here. There was no evidence of “men’s things” nor of children’s bits and bobs anywhere.
