This hut has been preserved at Catcleugh as an example of the living quarters of the men who worked there. My father-in-law was born at Catcleugh (his father was a blacksmith working on the site), presumably in a hut like this, where his mother took care of a family (six children) and, according to the 1901 census, about twenty lodgers - imagine housing and feeding that lot in accommodation like this :-) I assume that they ran a shift system! This was taken in July 2006 on one of the open days at the reservoir.
On my way back to the UK today - apologies for lack of comments and responses yesterday - a busy one! - and today.
