That looks very tidy...
Who's Mr. Straw?
Brian Walbey: Mr.Straw was a local businessman in Worksop, Nottinghamshire and the left hand one of the pair was his home. You will find out more when I post my short series in the spring.

I do like the bay windows...enough for everyone to have their own?!
Brian Walbey: They look good don't they, we are very pleased with the one we've had fitted to the front of our house, it makes quite a difference.
Quelles jolies maisons. J'aime beaucoup leurs formes.
Brian Walbey: Very much of the period they were built in, more of that in the spring.

One day I'm going to go there too..
Brian Walbey: Well worth a visit Chris, Mr.Straw's house is the left hand one but the NT now have both houses so they are viewed as one.
A pleasant looking house Brian, red brick is so warming.
Brian Walbey: And very interesting inside as well.

I'm going to leave my house to the National Trust when I go as a museum of how people lived in the 1970s smile My 1973 semi is not a grand nor as attractive as this place, though.
Brian Walbey: As you know my house is a 1970's bog standard style housing estate property, it now looks better with new front windows and the bay window in the lounge.
We didn't get to see this so I will be interested!

It looks like two houses under one roof. Are they both part of Mr Straw's house? This period living museum could provide excellent pictures.

His house was a great discovery ...
Brian Walbey: Mr.Straw's house is the left hand one but the NT now have both houses so they are viewed as one.
I like workshops.
Brian Walbey: It isn't a mis-spelling Mary, the town really is called Worksop, once a thriving industrial place.
A handsome Victorian house!
Brian Walbey: Mr.Straw's house is the left hand one but the NT now have both houses so they are viewed as one. I guess this wouldn't be that far away from you Tom.
it's a very nice row of houses Brian... i like the brick wall working it's way down the hill....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes a very nice wall outside the houses that were Mr.straws.
A grand set of houses, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Mr.Straws house is kept 'in period' but could be modernised to be a really comfortable place to live in.
