Steve was born in Hillend and after working locally ended up working away for best part of 30 years in Civil Engineering before returning to his roots in Llangennith. The restoration of a decaying Victorian house that regularly flooded was not an option and he and Jane have built a quality traditional house at a slightly higher elevation than the original. A small steam that tumbles through the garden at the side of the house nearly caught them out in the August flash flooding ! The house has a delightfully modern but in keeping modern twist to the rear. The stone from the original building has been used to great advantage on the walls and garage.
