We demolish the Garden Cottage – June 2012

Colin Rapley, our neighbour from Hambledon, started work in June, demolishing the Garden Cottage.  Here he is seen explaining to me why I could not crash his digger through the walls in one huge demolition derby!

The internals and roof were burned in a corner of the building where once, ironically, the fireplace had been.

Four days later, the whole building was gone.

Compare the view now to when the house was standing!
