Thatch Fire 3 March

As many of you know, very sadly Well Cottage and Westwell Cottage on Monxton High Street suffered terrible damage last night, Saturday 3 March with a major thatch fire.

Fifteen fire appliances from Hampshire and Wiltshire with over 70 fire crews, as well as ambulances and Police attended the scene and worked tirelessly through the night. The fire crews did the most incredible job saving the neighbouring cottages, especially Pound Cottage which is immediately adjacent to Well Cottage. Significant efforts were made by the fire crews to salvage property from within the building.

Fortunately, no-one was hurt in the incident.
