Sea Cottage from the shoreline c. 1910

Sea Cottage, occupied by the Joseph Millers and afterwards by the Jacks, stood close to the shore with nothing but a narrow, buttressed path between it and the shingle.

The derelict cottage is featured on Tyneham Action Group postcards

Sea Cottage stood above the rocky beach alongside the boathouse slipway, facing the South Westerly gales. For over thirty years it was home to Old Henry Miller’s son Jack Miller, his wife ‘Miggie’ (Alice White Rose) and her mother Martha, a lively, quick witted East Ender known to all as Granny Rose. 

In 1943 Jack and ‘Miggie’, both aged 77, were evacuated to a cottage at Langton Matravers near Swanage.

Only the foundation bank now remains
