Cross-posting this from "Reasonably Epic Mail Fail"

Take a peek inside Britain's smallest house which is just six feet wide and ten feet tall (but manages to squeeze in thousands of tourists every year)

Located on the west coast of Wales in the sleepy fishing village of Conwg, it can only fit four people at a time and is just 6ft wide.
This building is in the busy town of Conwy, not the sleepy fishing village of Conwg. Does the DM newsroom actually have the internet?

I live about five minutes from there, and I can assure all readers that the house is in Conwy, which is, and always has been, very much on the northern coast. As for 'sleepy fishing village', it has a giant fucking castle (which is a UNESCO world heritage site), one of the best-preserved rampart walls in the UK, several 14th century townhouses and is right next to a motorway. It even has a new-build marina village and an enormous golf course (which, incidentally, is where they built the Mulberry platforms in secret during WW2). I'm not one to take offence on behalf of the Welsh easily, but this level of ignorance is insulting.

Spent a week in a little cottage on Conwy Marina over the summer. Lovely place, and laughable from The Mail to not even use fucking google.

Strange little house, mind. The last occupant was a six three fisherman. At the same height myself, I couldn't imagine living there!

Why is something that has been there for that long suddenly news?

Engine parts from Boeing 777 carrying 258 people fell 15,000ft onto Hertfordshire village striking property after mid-air fault
Parts of a plane’s engine fell from 15,000ft onto a Heretfordshire village as it made its ascent from Heathrow, according to an investigation.
It was later discovered that parts had fallen on the village of Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.
If it's outside the M25, it's a village. FACT.

London rents are so high it is now cheaper to live in BARCELONA and commute in (and here’s how…)


What he found was an unlikely solution: it would be more cost effective to relocate to the sun-kissed coast of North West Spain, more than 700 miles away

Good job they put London on there, or I'd not have had the first idea where Oldham was.

(Apart from it not actually being IN Manchester)
