Old cottage on Green Terrace

What we know about this image :

This cottage was in such a bad state of repair that it was earmarked for demolition. Ian Christison & his wife purchased the property for £10,000 & proceeded on restoration which took over four years to complete. Fragments of pottery were found on the site & passed to a Durham archaeologist who visited the property. After intense investigation it was eventually concluded that this had originally been a fourteenth century dwelling with living quarters upstairs & livestock kept below. It was recorded as being the 'oldest lived-in dwelling in Cleveland' & became a listed building.
