Captain Cook's Cottage, Vic, Aus ...
Built in 1755 by the parents of Captain James Cook, the cottage originally stood in the North Yorkshire village of Great Ayton.
In 1933 the owner of the cottage decided to sell it to the empire, and an Australian bid of £800 was accepted.
I thought to move house is stressful enough, but to actually move a house, well that's a completely different ball game!
The cottage was deconstructed brick by brick and packed into 253 cases and 40 barrels complete with an ivy cutting, for shipping onboard the Port Dunedin from Hull.
This lovely old photo shows Cooks Cottage where it once stood, circa 1920. The single storey extension was demolished before the sale.
The cottage now stands in the beautifully picturesque Fitzroy Gardens in the city of Melbourne, Australia.
