Lemarne in 2006
This is Lemarne as it was in 2006. This was originally
built as two homes, back to back either side of the fireplace, each
comprising one large room downstairs and one large room upstairs. It is
listed as eighteenth century and was probably occupied by workers at the
Lemarne Mine. Eventually the two homes were converted to a single dwelling
with two large living rooms and a single staircase upstairs. It then became
the gamekeeperís cottage and the kennels can still be seen in the garden.
The house was in a poor way in 2006 and had been clad in
white corrugated iron, as can be seen in the photograph above. There was no
mains electricity and power came from an old generator, see below.
