The Property

Dating from the 14th century, Birds Cottage is the oldest surviving house in the whole of the city and was built using a structure known as a cruck arch. This is a rare form of construction and only 130 such structures exist in England and Wales. Inside, the property would have originally been completely open. The Bird family - who lived there from around 1742 until the mid-20th century - were carpenters and the property has a yard area which still has a sawpit.
