Aptly Named…..

 

Thimble-Hall

Thimble Hall, Youlgreave, Derbyshire

Aptly named ‘Thimble Hall’ a minute cottage in the Derbyshire village of Youlgreave.  This style of housing was once common from the mid 1700 thru 1800’s and was know as a ‘Two Up and Two Down’.

With the pressure on the scarcity of affordable housing here in the UK, I do wonder when we will go back to these old ideas….?!

Mind you Vagabonds are not that welcome as the sign from 1824 indicates
