Thatched Roof Thursday #88 - Willey, Warwickshire

Little Orchard Cottage
Main Street


It has been a long while since I have added to my
collection of thatched roof cottages.
When I had first sight of this building today, I thought it
looked a little plain.  I couldn't see much of the roof from the car.


Driving back I noticed that amazing goat.  I was delighted.


This cottage is Grade II Listed -
circa 17th century with circa 19th century alterations.

The village of Willey about 30 minutes from Coventry.

PS.  Happy Birthday, Lisa
