Two weeks ago I chose the thatched cottage in this photo to the left as part of my Thatched Roof Thursday series. I commented that there was a rather grand house next door. Here it is. Do you agree?
Brinklow village offers a lot of variety in architecture. Dunsmore House (sounds as grand as it looks) is a mid-eighteenth century red brink, three storey building. It has an old tile roof with a feature of end brick chimney stacks. The facade is symmetrical with sash windows. The classical character is maintained in the porch of Doric columns under a broken pediment, so says a Brinklow Conservation Report.
For me, today is more about the content of the photograph rather than the quality. Enjoy Dunsmore House, Broad Street, Brinklow.
