The Smallest House in Great Britain
The Smallest House in Great Britain
The Smallest House in Great Britain is also known as the Quay House and is a tourist attraction on the quay. The house measures 3.05 metres by 1.8 metres (10 feet by 6 feet) and was used as a residence from the 16th century until 1900. The house was lived in until 1900, when the owner was a 6ft 3 inch (1.9 metres) fisherman named Robert Jones. The rooms were too small for him to stand up in fully and he was eventually forced to move out when the council declared the house unfit for human habitation. The house is still owned by his descendants. The house was closed for the winter when this photo was taken.
