Wild Daffodil hosts a photo challenge which lasts all month on the subject of windows, it’s a good job it lasts all month as I completely forgot about it for the first two weeks! On Sunday, whilst we were walking Lady Anne’s Way I kept my eye open for unusual windows…
This is Skipton Castle’s main gate, designed to intimidate with it’s huge oak door, castellated towers and cannons either side. It reminds me of a face, not a very friendly one either!
This beautiful farmhouse is next to Embsay church, you can just see the Victorian bell tower peeping over the top. it seems perfectly settled in it’s surroundings, I love the sixteen paned windows, but I wouldn’t like to clean them!
Eastby is a little village right next-door to Embsay. The old Methodist chapel is now a very nice home. I always fancied a house with an arched window, I remember telling my OH this, he didn’t look perturbed as he obviously didn’t realise at the time that these usually came on very large (and expensive!) Georgian farmhouses!!
Just on the way out of Eastby we came across a very unusual window on the side of a farmhouse, it’s only little, about eighteen inches tall maybe, at the most, including the frame. I’ve never seen a window like this so I have no idea of it’s significance.
This photo challenge is organised by Wild Daffodil, so why not pop over to her site and see lots more windows.
