Elsie Allcock

Elsie Allcock has lived in the same house on Barker Street in Huthwaite for 104 years. She was born in a 2-bedroom terraced house in 1918, which her father had rented since 1902. She then went on to borrow a loan of £250 from the local council in order to buy the property.

Elsie has two children, six grandkids and 29 great-grandchildren. Here she is pictured with her late husband Bill. They tied the knot in 1941.
