Sea Cottage

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, 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.
