  1. How strange to see the intricate detailing around the fascia boards, then the rain water pipes clumsily running along the elevation underneath the first floor windows.
    Its a shame the chimneys have gone too, they would probably have been quite high above the roof and would have gone with the steeply pitched roof nicely.
