Two surprising discoveries
The first surprise is that our two bedroom house was originally a three bedroom house.
We had always assumed the bathroom and kitchen, both at the back of the house, were added later. But they weren't. They were part of the original house. Obviously the third bedroom is now the bathroom.
So, if there was a third bedroom upstairs, there must have been something below it. But what?
We know there used to be a pantry, a coal cellar and a toilet in that space. But we thought these were open to the elements. Obviously not!
(It would appear from the plans that you had to walk through the central bedroom to get to the master bedroom!!)
The second discovery is that our little stretch of Raglan Road used to have ten houses and now only has nine. One fell off. What a shame.
