Quarter Wall Cottages  Lundy Island, Devon
Quarter Wall Cottages Lundy Island, Devon
These are the Quarter Wall Cottages which were built to house the quarrymen employed by the Lundy Granite Company. Their working conditions may have been harsh hard manual work in a very raw and exposed environment. There are still signs of the old Lundy Railway, built to transport the granite to waiting ships and away from the island. Time photo taken not available.
