Willie Lotts Cottage

Cockington Green - June 26, 2018

This cottage has been totally re-constructed, due to the wear and tear of being in our display for 39 years. The original building was made by Doug Sarah, a calendar photo was used as a guide to replicate the building, we have recreated several buildings in this way.

With access to the internet, we are now able to replicate a much more detailed cottage. Roland our resident model maker is teaching Sam his off sider a lot of new techniques with this construction. This building required 6000 roof tiles approximately to be made and individually glued on. Sam & Roland have also added lighting to this building for those special occasions when we have a night opening.

Once the landscaping on the old site is completed this building will return to the display in all its beautiful glory. Meanwhile, come and look in the workshop window at this wonderful building.
