A Life Less Interesting
Fantastic building. I love it. Is there a word for it?
Love this building! This scene makes me want to stop in the shop with the Sale windows, then saunter along the streets to the sea.
"Old tat shop" is the way it gets described, Petrea. It's just an eighteenth century corner shop in Cromer. There are some beautiful houses in the little streets either side that lead to the clifftop. I might post some another time.Thos streets are definitely worth a saunter, Ms.M and that is just what Lynn and I did at the weekend. I took photos so they'll likely appear soon enough, in particular a derelict Dickensian garret house which is now being restored and that Lynn and I were fighting over.
*sigh* I love old buildings, BUT the realistic homeowner (don't get me started) I've become immediately thought, goodness, but the heating bills must be enormous! Look at those windows! I know there's no insulation in those walls.... I know, help me Obie Wan... ;~) xoxoxox
Hee hee, Savannah; we think the same things. This must be a nightmare to heat; it has thin, timber framed walls, massive, single-glazed windows (leaky old sashes, too) and those two little streets lead to the sea from whence Norfolk's infamous northerly howlers slam down from the arctic and suck every last drop of warmth from your bones.You certainly need to be hardy to live in a place like that.xoxoxox
I meant to ask, is there a name for this type of corner-shaped building? Like the Flatiron building in New York. Just wondering.It looks like those windows could use some fixing. It would be a nice spot, though, if you like cold.
No, Petrea; they're just buildings on corners. There's an opening for a neologism if you feel inspired.It is indeed a lovely spot, but it can get extremely cold in winter.
