                                      Year Purchased: 1942

                                      About: Richard parents Charles & Barbara Fellows bought the house in 1942 during the 2nd World War and moved into the house in 1944. Richard grew up here and returned with his wife Glenda in 2000 on the death of his mother.

                                      Why Worcester:
                                      Since 2000 much work has been done to the house up upgrade. However, at present the owners Richard & Glenda are cruising on their boat in the Mediterranean for the next few years.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                                      This is truly a unique country house little changed since the 15th century.
