(Please see my previous post(below) first- oops!)
Just across the churchyard from our house (above), is my in-laws' house, also camouflaged at present by flowers. This middle bit is "formerly a longhouse farmstead C17"........

"The main room has restored ingle-nook....". Within recently-deceased memory in the village, this one room was a two up & two down cottage, housing a family of ten.

Apologies for late delivery. Hoping for a nice ray-radiating sunset.

All four shots are excellent, Alan, and the history makes them come alive. Wilfred Owen has always been one of my favorite poets to teach.His "Dulce Et Decorum Est" and "Disabled" are poems I teach regardless of whether I'm teaching history of English in a given year.Can't wait to see the countryside.

Again, nice work, Alan. In the second shot, it looks like a modern fireplace has been built within the original stone fireplace. That's a novel idea.

Alan,

The view of the inside of the building is certainly revealing. The woodwork evokes old world craftmanship.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.
