From Westminster: Mayfair suffered a direct hit during the Blitz of winter 1940 and the area’s oldest cottage, which had an inscription over its doorway ‘The Cottage, 1618 A.D’ was destroyed. This little shepherd’s cottage was crushed under the blast from a bomb which had struck a public house opposite. Its James I rafters were left lying on a pile of rubble in its tiny garden.
