Loch Field Cottage

THS member Rob Wiseman has done some research into his Tongwynlais cottage.

Loch Field Cottage was build about 1790 for the canal workers. The tyth map of 1840 lists it as Loch Field Cottages and gardens. It was actually two cottages and would have probably housed about 8 people per cottage. It has some interesting features such as a bee hive bread oven, stone spiral stair case and a rare coffin drop built into the ceiling. I’ve lived here for almost 30 years and have had many spooky incidents, especially when the children were young.
