"Your image Ref 0126 is what was known as the Cosy Cott in Greasborough and is still standing although the old pear tree in the front garden has long since gone. The cottage is situated at the top of Grayson road, while the road to the right leads to what used to be Pearsons Farm and onto the village of Greasborough while to the left leads to Kimberworth Park past what is now Rockingham estate."
