And here we are, late on Monday afternoon – finally! I got straight out and took some photos as soon as I’d unloaded the car because it was simply so good to be here. I’d spent the best part of the day driving down from London and sitting around in Starbucks in Taunton waiting to hear that we’d completed. The solicitors had to be reminded at 3pm that I was still waiting to hear from them, at which point I went round and picked up some of the largest keys I’ve ever seen.
I will photograph them soon. If nothing else does, they prove the antecedents of the cottage lie well back in the past.
