that you Americans will know very well, has what we think is the original front door.
And these markings are on the door.
We think they may be the mark of the person who made it.
And this huge hole is the keyhole.
We still haven't found a key big enough to fit it so DH has had to block it up and put a "Yale" lock on the inside which, actually, doesn't show. Well you can't see it on that top photo can you?
And this is when the house was finished.
It's above the door leading from the lane into the courtyard. History in the making, quoi?
Started during the American War of Independence and finished before the French Revolution!
If only it could speak what stories it could tell.
Something odd is happening on Wordpress so I had better sign out and get on with life before this post goes pffffffffff.
