"Sparrow Castle" Harrington

Park Cottage, known locally as Sparrow Castle, lies above Rose Hill just below
Harrington Parks Farm.The Harrington Ironworks can be seen in the background

Alexander and Margaret McCoy, who were both originally from Northern Ireland,
lived there with several of their children.

It was occupied for a time by their daughter Lizzie McCoy.

The white mark on the roof is from a paint pot having been knocked over
while painting the nearest chimney stack, the furthest one having been
painted fairly successfully!
