The oldest in the village?

      Trundling through the village, me driving and the boss up in the chilly turret, when high up on an old cottage we see this little gem.
      The text and date are original, we were told, although I'm not so sure. They are incised in some sort of hard grey stone and at a later date the cuts have been stained in some way.
      Anyway who cares? They look smart and are a definite departure from the Victorian and Edwardian plaques that we normally see. We particularly like the the lintel of bricks above the plaque, somebody cared here.
      Smart, different and quite classy.
