Hi everyone.

Firstly, apologies for the bump without any historical update. My reason for posting is sadly earlier this year my father (twowheeledkelly) who lovingly restored the house, passed away from cancer. He renovated many properties over the years, always motivated by his love for architecture and interesting buildings, but he stated Bird's House, or the Old House as we called it, was one of his favourite projects, if not his favourite.

I have many photos from the house, I've taken a series of professional photos of the house in it's completed state pre-Sale, but I don't have many from the renovation. I know he put on a wall stripping party at some point through this website, so if you have any photos from that day, I'd love to see them / store them safe somewhere. If you do, I can be contacted at cytoon@gmail.com. Thank you

My Dad Roger's obituary in which the house is mentioned and a photo of him I took in front of it, can be viewed here: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/aug/09/roger-kelly-obituary.

All the best, Joe

Hello Joe,

This is sad news .

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your father, Roger. Such a very nice man and of gentle nature, I am sure he will be missed by many.
Roger did put so much work into the house, and I was very lucky to have met him, when he showed me around after the renovations were completed .
There are not any left visiting this site now , of those who were involved with the 'stripping party', but they may see your post at some stage .

We are grateful for you informing us of his passing, thoughts are with you and your family. Thanks Joe.

Hi Joe, sorry to hear about your father.

I noticed today, Tuesday, two men with a ladder working on the roof of the low extension at the Mill Lane and Limekiln Lane corner.
I hope it was only for good and nothing getting stripped off.

We had a roof like in the outhouse and many cracked & missing slates had to be replaced.

Hope this puts your mind at rest, we have no intention of doing anything other than keeping her in her original state as much as possible. x
