Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

What a lovely day it has been, and I have been out for lunch! What more could one ask for!

Today I am posting a photograph which I took a couple of days ago. I took it in the village where I live and I hope it will show you how old buildings are being put to a new use rather than being demolished!

This was once the barn to a farm. It was used for storing the tractor and the hay when it had been harvested. The farm is no longer 'working' and is just used for residential purposes so the barn has been sold and very tastefully renovated. What was once the large arched doorway has been turned into an equally large picture window complete with stained glass motives. Inside it has all mod cons but that in no way intrudes on its outward appearance.

This barn, which is probably three hundred years old, will be preserved for future generations to enjoy!
(I just need to add, these buildings do not come cheap! The older they are, the more they seem to cost!)

Thank you for your visit. I hope you found it useful and even enjoyable! Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)
