Sorry folks but here are more photos, this time from my walk this morning.
I wanted to take a look at the other side of town to see if there are any locations that would suit us.
An hour and a half, finishing with a good flat section along the promenade.
I couldn't resist photographing a couple of interesting buildings side by side on the prom...
So...tell me about Bleak House. *waits with chin in hand*.ReplyDelete
Oooh. I just watched a video. Has it been fixed up or are they still tangled up in court?ReplyDelete
The saga is still dragging on I believe. I just can't imagine how much it would cost to renovate that place now!Delete
Bleak House does indeed look bleak. I believe that Charles Dickens wrote a novel about it.ReplyDelete
It couldn't get much bleaker could itDelete
Bleak House in name and appearance. But it's a beautiful old house. Needs big bucks I guess.ReplyDelete
Oh I do love good flat sections. Particularly with a cafe at the end of them
Plenty of cafes Linda!Delete
Did you spot any possible locations for your next home? Looks like a busy city!ReplyDelete
It is a very small town but a working town so lots going on. I saw a few locations I like but P says they are too far to walk to buy a newspaper and a pint of milk!Delete
It looks like the sort of small town I could live. Excellent to have a few things like a small shop or two within walking distance.ReplyDelete
Oh yes Rachel, that is exactly what we were looking for when we decided to move. Just hoping we can now find a place to buy that is as convenient.Delete
'Bleak House' looks fun. A total mess other than the two perfectly gilded balls at the entrance. Someone has a sense of humour!ReplyDelete
Lipstick on a pig?Delete
If that gets demolished it will make a hole in the style and appearance of the neighbourhood. It is a shame that property is allowed to deteriorate to such an extent. We are surrounded by bleak houses in Piraeus; unfortunately the vast majority are being demolished by gravity.ReplyDelete
It is, sadly, a famous local landmark, notorious for its state of decay and probably no longer repairable.Delete
It reminds me of Llandudno with its Victorian buildings and promenade. It looks a good place to walk.ReplyDelete
There are lots of Victorian buildings in the town, and many road names such as Victoria, Albert, Walpole. etc.Delete
The promenade is quite long so a good flat walk.
