TUDOR STYLE, MUCH WENLOCK

 

Much Wenlock is a delightful Shropshire town with many old buildings dating from a variety of periods.

 

This one is the view of the Guildhall from the back in Chruch Green.  The oldest parts of the building date back to 1540 and since then various additions and alterations have been made, and part of it is still in use for meetings by the local council.

I love this style of building Brian, and that ivy outside is wonderful. Very nice picture.
Brian Walbey: And this is the genuine article Frances, not what we call "Mock Tudor."
An intriguing name Much Wenlock Brian, many years since I have been there though. The ivy does add to the character.
Brian Walbey: We really liked the place Les, but then all round that area is very nice.

Really like the greenery here, Brian...that should be a fine place to exercise your close-up filters.
Brian Walbey: It could well be Ray, if I ever go there again I will be sure to take my filters.
Classic Tudor there Brian! I like how you've framed it!
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Elizabeth, the real thing.
I love Tudor style Brian. Lovely capture!
Brian Walbey: So do I Richard especially when it is the genuine article.

These black-and-white buildings are so photogenic, Brian? Have you any more?
Brian Walbey: They are indeed Lisl. I probably have some more but not in this series sadly.
A charming little town, no doubt you visited the Priory Brian
Brian Walbey: WE did visit the Priory Bill, we thought it a lovely little town also, indeed all that area is very nice. We drove from there along the Wenlock Edge to Church Stretton, where my boss at work lived at the time, another nice place.

I'm a glutton for this Tudor work, Brian. But you already know that!
Brian Walbey: I know you are Ginnie which is why this was posted on a Friday when I thought you would probably see it.

I love the name of this town and the buildings in it! Great Tudor buildings smile
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little place Linda, well worth a visit if you ever go that way.
looks a little like Austria and germany style
Brian Walbey: I suppose it does upon reflection Chantal, I wonder who got there first.

This is real old England as the Victorians wanted to remember it. However, the buildings were whitewashed all over when this was built.
Brian Walbey: It certainly is Chad but I do believe this is the real thing not the "mock" type.

Much Wenlock is a fine place Brian
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place Chris. We drove on from there, via the Wenlock Edge to Church Stretton, another nic eplace and worth a visit.

I like going to these old houses as well Brian always something of interest to look at, nice capture.
Brian Walbey: This place is really worth a visit if you haven't been, the ruined Priory is just behind me when I took this.

a beautiful example of Tudor Style architecture I like very much! This old merry England I love so much!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is the real thing Philine, lovely isn't it.
What is it about b&w timbers and round windows that sets the heart a-fluttering and humming Greensleeves?
Brian Walbey: I suspect we feel proud it is part of our history and heritage Sheila, sadly children don't learn very much about all this these days.
Love the tiled roof Brian
Brian Walbey: The whole building, indeed town is very nice Richard.
A lovely crisp image of a fine old building Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Martin.

Lovely building and shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, the whole place is a nice place to visit.
Quintessentially English, Brian, lovely capture. Roll on summer!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Neil, I agree about Summer, the weather let us down today after some nice sunny days, still better than snow.

This is such a wonderful picture, true art, they did a great job preserving it.
Great capture.
Brian Walbey: It is a real pleasure when one comes across lovely buildings like this still standing Astrid. I'm sorry to hear you've been unwell, I hope you are now on the mend.

Now I've seen this place not in not such helpful weather, though. Your image brings out its charm and character very well. There's a cracking butcher's in Much Wenlock, too - oh, and a fine tea shop almost next door.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine little town we thought, I don't remember the butcher but I do seem to remember a teashop.
