Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Today the weather has been very windy but thankfully it has blown all the snow clouds away and the temperature has risen somewhat. (Yes, you are right, we Britons are always concerned about the weather! That's because we don't get enough sunshine!)

I am posting a shot I took with my casio whilst out walking in my village. This row of small terraced cottages is about 200 hundreds years old. The cottges would have been built to accommodate farm workers and mill workers for there were several big mills in the village besides numerous farms. (Sadly, the last of the mills has recently closed and the land has been cleared for new houses.)

All the old cottages in the village are built from natural stone. All had small windows with used to have sash openings. The cottages have small front gardens bordered by dry stone walls. They also have small back gardens which would have been extremely useful for planting or keeping small animals.

The house in the middle of the block, which has an extra storey, used to be the bakery. It has a large opening on the first floor through which the flour could be hoisted.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed finding out about the village.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)
