Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have been browsing my photographs and found some that I had prepared to post and never did!

Today, I am posting one of these photographs. Please click on History All Around to enjoy the scene larger and clearer.

I remember taking this. I was standing in the church yard (you may see a gravestone in the f/g) and tried to use this tree as a canopy and a border to the scene of the cottages.

I don't usually take a back view of cottages but I just loved how we could see history in the modern world. These old cottages retained their drystone walls, clearly defining the extent of their small garden areas, where they would have grown vegetables or had small hen coops, when the cottages were occupied by farm workers.

Now they are desirable dwellings and you can see how some have been extended in their modernisation, although there is always a strict code that materials have to be in keeping with the originals.

From the front, this is a row of terraced cottages, very pretty but so much more interesting from the back!

I will show the frontage as a workshop.

Have a lovely day, Bev 😀
