Not an EPZ 'wow' upload but, I hope these images will be of some interest!
Holy Austin Rock Houses at Kinver, in South Staffordshire, is our nearest National Trust Property, just 3 miles from where I live.
The rock houses were inhabited until the late 50s/early 60s; I used to cycle there many years ago – you could roam and climb amongst these relatively recent ‘cave dwellings’.
V1 shows the new National Trust tearoom and the warden’s accommodation – re-built within the last 20 years or so.
V2 is a ‘then and now’ collage:-
The left hand image was taken by my good lady on her Brownie Instamatic in 1976 with me on the right with our good friends Anne and John and Meg, their Red Setter.
The right hand image was taken this year from more or less the same spot – you can see how the weather has eroded the sandstone and, also, the original position of the roof.
Many appreciative thanks for your views, votes and comments on my ‘The Baptistry Window at Coventry Cathedral’ upload, with special thanks to Dave(ugly), Patty(pentaxpatty) and Danny(Danny1970) for their much valued User Awards!
Not been around much today, trimming hedges, cutting the grass and father-in-law sitting(old age will come to us all, with a bit of luck!); will catch up later.
