The loos at the end of Grange road are closed, I believe. A matter for complaint by the antique traders iirc. I've never seen them open.

Pages Walk aren't exactly cottages. Just small houses. Likewise Lynton Road/Alma Grove etc imo.

What is a cottage that a small house is not?

Thatched roof, wisteria, hollyhocks, grass, (semi?) detached.

I just don't see a Victorian terrace as being a 'proper' cottage. It's too big & grand. Perhaps I am wrong!

cottage. n. 1 a small simple house esp. in the country. 2 a dwelling forming part of a farm establishment used by a worker. 3 slang you know.. [Middle English via Anglo-French cotag Anglo-Latin cotagium from COT or COTE.

cote n. a shelter esp. for animals or birds; a shed or stall.

I'd have thought it'd have to be at least a semi. A very small semi at that.

It was months before I realised that the ' artisans cottages ' advertised in pages walk were the ' old railway 'ouses!'

Jan,

Any more eveidence of your struggle to adopt the current rebranding terminology could result in you being drummed out of Southbankside by a posse of estate agents.

Take care!!

Ivanhoe, are you SoBo (SouthBankside) or SoBo (SouthBorough)? And when did the practice of removing the space between related words begin and why? I've just realised, on reading your post that I do it all the time. What's wrong with me? I haven't yet taken to turning all my statements into questions but surely it's only a matter of time. Then my flat will become an appartment and then a loft and the collar on my rugby shirt will turn itself up. I don't think I can face the inevitability of reaching a point when I think that Wimbledon's a pretty cool place on a saturday night and that All Bar One is a nice relaxing place to meet my friends. They're bulldozing my ghetto man.
