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.

  2. 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.

  8. 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.

  16. 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!
