GOOD FENCES #72


This was in the town of Totnes, South Devon and my photos were taken last month.  We passed by an old church that had since been bought and turned into a private residence.  I was very taken with the wrought iron fences out front.  On looking at my photos recently I knew I was going to use them for this week's Good Fences












Thank you for hosting such a fun meme Theresa.  You can visit other participants if you click on Good Fences.

What an amazing looking door and entrance!

How lovely. I once had a great desire to live in a house that was really something else... like the church, and even a coach. I had strange tastes in those days but I loved the feeling of uniqueness.

Roan said...

That is one beautiful old church and love the fence!

A lovely idea. A few of the older churches around her (Alexandia) have been converted into living quarters. The architecture of this church/residence is very unique. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful arch stone work around the door and ornate fencing is so beautiful!

Wow! - How cool that must be to live in that grand old church. The Wrought Iron fence is very nice and the brickwork on the church was fabulous. Loved your photos of this place.

Frank said...

Just love the attractive brickwork.

Christine said...

It's a truly beautiful building with great fences and brickwork. Interestingly, a few years ago in our neighbourhood, a developer built a replica church home which looks very like the one in your photos!
Enjoy your weekend!

The fences are nice but that archway pattern around that door is fabulous!

That's a very cool door and beautiful fence. Just imagine living in an old church - it does sound interesting.

The doors and windows are very interesting too. I love all the color in the brick. Very lovely.

Such stunning elegance, that is one incredible design around a fine crafted door! The rod iron fence blends well too. Your second photo and the photo with the windows are just dreamy!

They made the church into a pretty fancy house never mind the fence.

Looking at the outside of this former church and now private home made me curious as to how the interior was eemodeled.
