I have been checking out Julie's Hooked on Houses site again, totally addicted! Will be getting loads of inspiration for when I get to start building my house.
Anyway Julie got me thinking; it took me back to my root's & I came up with these three buildings that have different characteristics. Photo's courtesy of my Mum, thanks Mum!!
The top photo is a little cottage in the village of Chaddesley Corbett in Worcestershire; the wisteria climbing on the building is just gorgeous.
This one is from Stratford-upon-Avon, where William Shakespeare was born. It is such a quaint country cottage; it makes you want to go to the village for a cream tea.
The Crooked House
And finally there is this wonderfully shabby building. This has now been converted from a miner's cottage, to a public house. The illusion is enough to induce an unsettling effect in the stomach; either that or one too many pints of Mild (a dark English beer) have been drunk! What a building this is The Crooked House, in the Black Country in the heart of The Midlands, England. Inside the flooring is level so you don't fall over (only after a few pints).
I have added a link if any one wants to read about some of the history.
