Farewell, Crooked House

I woke to the very sad news that a local landmark, the Crooked House, was destroyed by fire overnight. 

Between Gornal Wood and Himley, it’s the area where we now live. 

I’ve been in the past but my wife hadn’t and I’m glad that we went there in February of this year.

It just shows that if you’re going to do something then do it now and don’t put it off, otherwise you might miss the opportunity altogether. 

As to the cause of the fire, at the moment any guesses would be exactly that, but no doubt the verdict will be out sooner rather than later as the authorities investigate.
