Crooked little house


There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
This is the 14th. century moated manor house at Lower Brockhampton in Herefordshire.
We spent a crooked little day there on Sunday.

Lovely pic - and much better than the ones I took last month when we, too, visited this place. Lovely. We went to see the damson blossom but were a few days too late; it was 'going over'. Hope you are well.

Hi Annette,

I am so envious of all the places you visit. I would love to be able to take photos of half timbered cottages. It would be a great help to me while I am designing my dollhouse. No chance of finding these in the USA.
How all is well with you.
