There is a "Pile Cottage" marked on the map at 7:06.
What distinguishes a "pile" cottage from any other cottage?
I shall have to research that.
Does it mean a brick cottage, perchance? It still seems to be in current usage.
And what does "pcm" mean? Monthly rent, perhaps?
From what I have discovered ‘pile’ refers to the way the foundations are laid on weak ground.
If that has anything to do with this cottage I have no idea.
PCM-per calendar month.
Yes, piles or pilings are commonly used in skyscraper construction, extending down to bedrock to support the massive weight of the building, but I don't see how that would apply to a cottage.
The term is used in the US in describing certain historic structures, but without explanation of the meaning.
And evidently, they could have "double piles". Of course, the "cottage" in this picture is more like a mansion.
Not a lot about it really.Shall do some more digging.Different terms may yield different results.
