Nice iconic building, did the Bard live in one of these nearby?

Wrong Stratford for the Bard. He resided in Startford upon Avon in Warwickshire. This neck of the woods famous son is one John Constable, painter of the early 1800's who painted the Hay Wain, Dedham Vale etc.

Agreed Nick, but would you want to live there?

No thanks KC ~ I'm feeling old enough as it is, without occupying such a twisty twirly house, full of low beams and spiders :)))

A friend of mine once thought he had cracked the idyll of living in one. What a pain. He lasted about nine months till he bolted for something with a few more right angles in it. Just walking across the foor was like being on a roller coaster.

I just love this kind of architecture, so much of it in Suffolk too. As for living it one...the upkeep would be tremendous! I think I'll stick to my 1967 build with 2005 extensions, and I can tell you which bits are the warmest! (2005) L&F.

Cheers, Rosa.

I'm in a 1908 Victorian and it is a pain with upkeep. I much prefer the charachter, but there is a lot to b said for new build. As to this late 1500's at a guess, where would one start???
