Charlie's Cottage: Derelict Swanton Abbott

A derelict cottage in the North Norfolk village of Swanton Abbott. Apparently, this was last the residence of an older man known as Charlie. Even when occupied, the cottage was without electricity or running water. Standing alone with fields on one side of the building and woodland on the other, it's easy to imagine how, in the depths of winter, this could have felt like a scene from a hundred years past.

NB - I didn't realise at the time, but this is actually marked on the Ordnance Survey as 'Strawberry Hall.' A somewhat grand title - so much so that I kept misreading it 'Strawberry HILL,' as I simply assumed this wee cottage was far from a hall...
