i was talking to the owner of a house on the oneway street at back of the junction hotel,the house was originally 3 cottages and it was made into one house.the owner said it was built in about 1703 and the house next door was older. ?does any one know of any older properties in Featherstone where people are still living in them.

I'd say the bradley arms pub is among the oldest buildings in feath, it was the original farmhouse, and some of the farm buildings are listed, one of them is an old tythe barn. Grin
