    Great image Kev thanks. I like the way the artist as recorded the date plaque. I'm not sure if it's still there, but confident someone on here will know .

    I think the Diddy men still live there, but Doddy had to move out

    BTW.
    Last week I did something I rarely do...

    I watched 'Staying In' on the box. They put this joke into the mouth of a teenager...

    Did you hear, Ken Dodd has died.
    Did he?
    No. Doddy.

    The image says 1782, Must've meant 18th century.

    Yes it does say 1782.
    Sorry!

    I suppose he means what he says.
    How do we know it wasn't rebuilt?
