The Cottage That Time Forgot


‘When Fred Saigeman died in 2010, aged 78, he left 15th century Fulling Mill Cottage, in Fittleworth, West Sussex – his home, and his parents and grandparents before him – and 82 cats to a local cat charity, on condition they took care of his pets and prevented his old family home and grounds from being demolished and redeveloped.’

    Well, they haven’t let the old house get torn down but they’re not really taking very good care of it either, are they?

    Places in Britain like this must be very rare, now. There was a man who lived in what had been a pretty estate lodge near me where I grew up, that was, until about 15 years go, trapped in the same old rural family timewarp, though with more ferrets.

    They are going to restore it – it is already in progress. Thanks for the link Lara. If you go to this page just about the Fulling Mill Cottage there is the full story, and a link to 18 pictures.
