No.12 Market Place, Lavenham, Suffolk – a 15th or 16th century timber-framed and plastered building, with wisteria growing up the front of it.
Lavenham is probably England’s best preserved medieval town and it is believed by some that the distorted, or "crooked", appearance of many of the town's timber-framed buildings may have inspired the English nursery rhyme, "There Was A Crooked Man” -
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile,
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Crow's-nest' - of which there were two!
