Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge – 26th February


The Smallest House in Great Britain….

A BIG claim but true.  This dwelling on the Quay at Conwy, in the shadows of Conwy Castle, is indeed the smallest house in Great Britain.

It has been there since the 16th century and lived in until 1900 when local Fisherman Robert Jones was eventually forced to move out. The house has a floor area of just 10ft by 6ft and is on two levels.  Equally amazing it that Robert Jones was a lofty 6ft 3inches tall and could never stand to his full height in any of the rooms.

Today the house is an obvious but intriguing  tourist attraction.  Your guide would be a Welsh Lady in traditional Welsh Dress complete with black hat and lace frill.

As you can see in quiet times she has to stand outside to be able to read the Daily Paper.

Just an idea for this Weeks Cees Odd Ball Photo Challenge.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge – January 29th


Summer will come again…..we hope!

For this weeks Cees Photo Challenge I thought I would do a little bit of pipe dreaming to improve my mood in this time of (for us) rather poor, dark dismal weather.

Looking very much to warm summer days and tea with cream cakes in the afternoon.   Bliss.

Please…Speak to me !

This famous piece of Sculpture by Henry Moore has created much interest for this young Ewe….maybe it recognises an ‘animal’ similarity with the stone…Can you?

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge – Week 50


The Heardman’s Barn

Grindsbrook, Edale, Derbyshire

Winter sunshine catches the colours of the gritstone of the Heardman’s Barn.   Passed by a great many walkers, either starting or finishing, on their journey along  Pennine Way Long Distance Path….. no doubt many with weary legs have paused awhile on the rustic bench sheltered from the wind.
