Newton Hall from the rear.


I've shown you Newton Hall from the front before, and I've even shown you the beams inside, but today I thought I'd show it you from the rear.

So here we have a 14th century building with a convenient 21st century addition.

I don't know if those are damp patches on the wall or an attempt to whitewash over some graffiti.

The building is actually surrounded by modern industry including some space-age technology.

My other ABC-Wednesday N posts this week are ~~ Newton Bank Printworks at Old Hyde ~~ No Smoking at Ackworth born, gone West ~~ No Through Road at Sithenah

To visit more ABC-Wednesday posts go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place.

I do wish they wouldn't add the modern bits to these wonderful old buildings.

I agree with Mo, if they must add--come up with a design plan that respects the original structure.

A venerable house surrounded by modern industry. I`m glad we keep some of the old, all over the world. We have to! Not everything is ment to be new and modern. We can`t forget how our ancestors lived. But, honour them. I like the beams inside. Rustic and nice.

Interesting to see things from more than one view. NOT bad!

Dragonstar said...

Lovely place. Thanks for the links to your older posts, too - makes it even more interesting.

That's definately whitewash. Leave old buildings alone.Without the modern(yuk!)appendage, it's almost Manx.Like the choice of the rear view.

Very Neat. If I had thought a bit, I should have taken a picture of Isaac Newton's grave in Westminster Abbey since I have just returned from London. A post on him would have been highly appropriate.

I agree, leave it be - a fine old structure should remain unfettered from modern day (improvemens). Good choice for N.

Nikon said...

By US standards, I'd say that is an historic looking building :-)

Ashtonian said...

it's whitewash covering some writing that said hydedailyblogspot

Gerald, I've looked at and read all four of your N posts--good job, great variety. I agree with you about the smokers. Would that mankind had not picked up that vice.

When I was a kid Newton Hall was a barn in the farmyard. It had a cobbled yard and a very old farm. I used to go there to buy milk and eggs.It was when they were pulling the barn down that they discovered the remains of the old hall.
