The Davies's cottage, Blakemoorgate
The Davies's cottage, Blakemoorgate
A second miner's cottage restoration project made possible by Heritage Lottery funding in conjunction with English Heritage, Natural England, Shropshire Wildlife Trust, Defra, Shropshire Hills AONB, The European Agricultural Fund, Advantage West Midlands and the Rural Development Programme.

This cottage was last lived in by a Mr Edwin 'Neddy' Davies in 1955. The cottage was later abandoned and virtually collapsed, like its neighbours. The little community that flourished here for nearly a century would have been lost forever if intervention had not been possible.

Now two cottages have been returned to their heyday, set in the late 1800's. They look better than a Barratt's home any day. If a little more basic. Certainly on a bigger plot, and the view, in summer, is worth seeing.

They are not inhabited so I hope they survive as intended.
