Great Royaldevon 2020-02-02 3:14

Bonjour Philippe,

This is obviously a well built fortress, in a commanding position.
WE can see how it fits snuggly into the hillside, where it could survey the sea, without being a big target.
I like how you have used the access pathway as an irresistible guide line.

I'm confused about the items on the railings. Are they flags or towels?

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Default To maloutim: Friendship

Thank you MarieLouise.
Friendship cannot be voted out by politicians.
I'm sure friendships are strong enough to ride the economic divisions!

According to my sources, these houses were built in a style seen in the Alsace region, where the inheriting Lord Ingliby had been living.
When he arrived at Ripley, he demolished the existing houses and built the new ones in the French style.
There is no record of the opinions of the householders!
The castle and the pub were not included in this revamp.

Have a good day,
Bev

Thanks for your reply Beverley.
I suppose I don't much about the history of architecture in Alsace. Interesting to learn about it.
Have a good week.
Marie-Louise.
