Did you know this about Britain’s housing stock

Much is written about how property prices have exploded since World War II.

It has actually been happening for centuries.

But little is written about how the housing stock has changed.

For example, did you know that the vast majority of houses built before 1900 didn’t have a bathroom? A heavy tub would be brought into the kitchen once a week so the family could wash together.

But perhaps even more surprising is that the 1967 House Conditions Survey found that 25 percent of homes in England and Wales still didn’t have a bath or shower, an indoor WC, a sink and hot and cold water taps.

If a Georgian or Victorian builder looked at what the houses they built have now become, they would be flabbergasted.

I hope you have a Happy Easter.
