An isolated Plotlands cottage near where a new road is being built. Many of the Plotlands homeowners refused to sell up and move somewhere else; some of them held out in the hope of getting more money for their land.

What did people get in return for losing their homes?
Why do people want to own land? What would their living conditions have been like? Does this happen anywhere else now?
