LOFT

crog loft, Llanon cottage

exhibition number: Cottage 1.2

The loft would have been a small space under the thatch roof, reached by a ladder. It may have been lit by one small window in the end wall. On the floor there would have been a number of small straw mattresses for the older children to sleep on. In some homes in Wales, the girls would sleep furthest from the ladder, so they would have more privacy than the boys. In other houses the boys slept in the attic, and the girls in the parlour.
