My house around 1920 “after the new felt roof was put on“.
And this photo was taken before 1970. I was told that the extension was added in 1948 after the new byre was built in 1947 to replace one at the end of the house. The porch was then altered later. A superb dry-stone dyke around a kale yard and haystacks.
So today I tried to reproduce the photo. I need to try again and get the angle right. I can see now where I went wrong.
But isn’t it fascinating? Not much change really to the basic properties except for the addition of the “big shed”.
After I had been faffing about trying to find the right angle to take the photo, I sat in the field and enjoyed the wonderful sunshine.
This is to the right of the haystacks.
Bluebells in the old kale yard.
And then I went and had a chat with Missy.
She jumped all over me and was in a fine mood. Eventually, Edna called her away as she couldn’t keep an eye on her darling daughter.
