Fresh air & photos

Hello Martin,

I am curious about the building at the back of the graveyard, what is it and what was it originally designed to be? If it were a residence I would expect the doors to the outside world to be on the lower level. Perhaps a stables with a feed store on the upper floor.

It has a chimney, so internal fireplaces, so perhaps not a stables.

Regards,

Pierre

PS: I very much enjoy this thread and love looking at the pictures.

Hi Pierre,

Thanks. :)

It's a summer house in the garden of the Old Rectory. The photo is looking at the back of it -- the gate leads from the churchyard into the rectory garden.

It's a listed building, more info:

Hello Martin,

When I looked at the photos you linked I realised that what I was looking at in your photo was the side of the building not the rear. The architecture looks like that used by the Great Central for their platform buildings but not so in this case. The clue was the caption that "the building overlooked the garden", when I looked at the site in Google satellite view it became apparent where the garden was and then the front and rear of the building.

Best regards,

Pierre

Thanks Pierre. I've always assumed that what is visible from the churchyard is the rear of the summerhouse, but on reflection it's obvious that the front of a summerhouse would face towards the house. Which puts the steps more logically at one side, rather than the rear, of the building.

But we are no nearer to knowing what happened to the chimney. :)

cheers,

Martin.

I should say I hiked for miles to take these shots but they were really taken at the back door.
