Carrick-a-Rede Cottage

I am glad to learn that the National Trust is to restore the old fisherman's cottage on the isle of Carrick-a-Rede in County Antrim.

The tiny cottage is stated to be 300 years old and it was last used in 2002. History is scattered both inside and outside the weathered whitewashed walls, from anchors and boat winches to buoys, ropes and eel traps.

The National Trust is appealing for volunteers to help in the restoration.

The scheme commences on the 18th June, when the interior features of the cottage will be documented before work starts.
