CFFC Fun Foto Challenge….Where people live (or lived)

The Smallest House, CONWAY

The Smallest House in Wales and Great Britain

Standing on the Quay in the shadow of Conwy Castle is this very tiny house.  Squashed between a terrace of houses, overlooking the Conwy Estuary, this house and its neighbours were once fishermen’s homes

This one does have the honour of being the smallest house in Great Britain (and endorsed by the Guinness Book of Records) consists of only two rooms, one up one down….. and only 1.8 meters wide.

Built in the 16th century it was lived in until 1900’s.  The last owner was a Robert Jones,  a local fisherman, was rather tall.  Standing at 1.9 meters high he had to stoop in the rooms and curl up in his narrow bed. But in 1900’s the local Council made the decision that the house was unfit for human habitation.

So there you have a little of the history….now it is a ‘tourist attraction’ and worth a peak inside.

Just another Autumn day….


Our first frost of the season…  it was though only a very light dusting and soon evaporated into what was another ‘Bonus’ autumn day.  More colour is now apparent but the green of summer, whilst fading, is still a dominant phenomena. It has, and is, an Autumn that has not been following the usual pattern… the oddity of some trees just striped bare,  others bright green and heavy in leaf whilst others are now changing to the familiar autumn gold, brown and reds. Autumn is late and I am even more convinced that we will probably move straight into winter…
