SP2050 : Nothing but the privy

Nothing but the privy
Nothing but the privy
As we sat here eating our lunch, we studied the map and the Shakespeare's Way guide book and were confused by the reference to a thatched cottage. We could see no evidence whatsoever although we knew we were in the right place. Later, looking on Geograph, we discovered these pictures of the cottage SP2050 : Atherstone on Stour, Thatched Cottage and SP2050 : Derelict thatched cottage but now only the brick privy, that would have been round the back, remains.

Update - April 2013: A correspondent has told me that the cottage, known as Cutlin Mill, was destroyed by fire on 28th May 2010. There is a press statement here LinkExternal link
Shakespeare's Way

Shakespeare's Way is a 146 mile long distance footpath from Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe theatre in London. It follows as nearly as possible a route that Shakespeare may have taken between the two, but using footpaths, quiet lanes and towpaths, rather than his tracks, which are today's main roads.
