Yes we do leave Cornwall sometimes. Yesterday we had a trip up to the beautiful Somerset village of Hinton St. George. A visit here is like taking a trip back in time. If you removed all the cars (not that you actually see many) you would feel like you were in the last century. I love the colour of the stone used in the houses and the abundance of thatched roofs. It is interesting to see the different styles and building materials used in different parts of the country and further afield.
A lot of the old buildings in Cornwall are built of cob. Visiting Chester we saw the beautiful Tudor black and white timber frame houses. Other areas are dominated by red bricks. When we visited Australia I loved the old buildings with the front porches and verandas on the old hotels. In New York the tenements with their fire escapes winding up the front of the buildings.
Do you have a favourite style?
Join me on a walk around the village. You can even catch a glimpse of Superman :)
Thank you for all your replies to Saturdays post, I will put up a pinwheels tutorial soon.
