619 Lathkill Dale

Building your house above a 70ft mineshaft sounds rather risky, but that's what Mr Bateman did in Lathkill Dale. Perhaps it was to keep an eye on his lead miners, but when sweeping the living room Mrs Bateman's broom went straight through the floor. What she said to her husband is not recorded.
