|The Pout and I|
We first visited the Anne of Cleves tudor cottage. This cottage was given to Anne by Henry V111 as part of her divorce settlement. She was the lucky one, kept her head and given a cottage. I have to say when you've seen one Tudor cottage you've seen them all. I know, many of you wonder how I can be so blase, but what I mean is that basically they are the same structure of timber and wattle and daub. Very much template built. For instance this cottage is so similar to Anne Hathaways cottage in Stratford I felt I was in the same building. Some fabulous work of preservation goes on to keep these places of history standing. We are very lucky to have these buildings in the UK.
It's really a ruin but a site worth visiting for the views Mr Him told us, and he proceeded to prove his point.
|'I'll show you how to be a view', says Mr Him|
|Harvey's Brewery...they did not go here|
and The Pout and I had a coffee in Bills...
...and did some people watching as we chatted.
