Cottages, Wormit - Ref: WC3204

Wormit, cottages showing beautiful laid-out cottage gardens. The occupier will no doubt have been self sufficient growing all their own vegetables. Wormit evolved as the newest of the south bank settlements, at the junction of Tayport branch line and the main line from the Tay Bridge.
