MOST RECENT

Minster House, another view.

Just watched two episodes of Grand Designs. Unfortunately, as grand as they were, there is no comparison.

This is another commission I will be documenting over at @northumbriancarpentry
Infested with woodworm and wet rot, this is the remains of one of the joists from an 1825 Georgian property.
Incredibly the floor was suspended on just the first half inch !

Oh the joys of listed buildings. Don't you just love em ?! 😍 .

Kirkgate, Ripon.
This street leads to the cathedral and is full of character retaining its period feel with most of the shop fronts retaining their original features.
As a child I spent a lot of time here and walking down this street brought back a lot of memories however, like my other recent town visits, I was disappointed to see so many empty properties. Clearly a sign of the times.

The Cabmans shelter, market place, Ripon.
Ornate, entertaining and rather lovely. Complimented by the telephone boxes. Some things just don't need to change.

Those of you who read my post on the 5th Sept about the Victorian porch, will now be pleased to know that common sense prevailed. The pair of them are to be restored and partly replaced.

Yesterday y called to take accurate measurements and in doing so, found this honeycomb inside the valley support timber that was hollow inside, complete with one tiny bee, dead unfortunately.

The rebuilding of these two porches will be documented over at @northumbriancarpentry soon.

To the rear of the old Courthouse in Ripon, there is a walled garden with seats within, one of which is this ex North Eastern Railway serpent seat post 1854.

These were located at numerous secondary stations in the Northeast.
After closure of Ripon station in 1969, it is likely the local council bought the seats from the station. This happened in many towns, they are now highly collectible and can quite often be found in villages that never had a station.
I know of some locations that the seats are now missing. I suspect they have been 'acquired'.

Minster House next to Ripon Cath........? How does that work ?!
Googled it, I know now. 😊
Learning something new is always a pleasure.

The vernacular and the community of Thirsk.
A quintessential North Yorkshire market town. Each region, each county even has its own style determined by available materials during their development.

Like many towns, particularly in rural areas, there are hidden gems off the beaten track and it is quite often we Instagramers that seek them out for us all to enjoy.

An ecclesiastical viewpoint.
The majesty of Ripon Cathedral. 672AD. There is something about Ripon's big church that commands attention. It's not overpowering in size, it fits its location well and above all, its a damn smart piece of kit.
Unlike other minster/cathedral cities, Ripon has dare I say, a steady drip feed of tourists and therefore makes it a comfortable place to visit. The cathedral also offers the possibility of viewing without being herded from door to Font and out through the side aisles at a leisurely stroll.
If you haven't been, go !

Meanwhile back in Thirsk.......
The James Herriot museum.

It was quite busy inside and like the many there, I was a fan, looked forward to Sunday evenings and of course , Carol Drinkwater. 😍

The definitive sign of autumn. In the approach to Ripon Cathedral stands a lovely old chestnut tree which was showering it's fruit in the strong winds.

Another trip to the sawmill today gave the opportunity to lunch in Thirsk again.
I had passed this Georgian beauty many times but had nowhere to park, but today I was lucky.
The Spitfire is knitted by the way. Why am I not surprised ?
Is Yorkshire the knitting capital of Britain ?

Carbuncle !

How was this ever allowed on a listed terrace ?
This is No 3 of our terrace in Northumberland Place, North Shields.

#carbuncle #georgianhouse #georgianarchitecture #architecture #architecturalengland #northtyneside #northshields #northeastengland #northernhumour ?

Rosella Place, North Shields 1820. Listed.

Once a terrace of five, the fifth and remains of which can be seen in photo No 4, which was demolished. Unsure of reason, maybe war related as Shields was a target.
The 2nd photo shows the door of No 2, which was the birthplace of Myles Birket Foster, the Victorian artist and illustrator. .

You can head over to my sister account @northumbriancarpentry to see a little repair job here in an 1825 house.
All our carpentry work can be seen there over the next few months.

Just a glimpse.

A corner of our Tearooms in North Shields.
Many original Georgian features still remain but I suspect that the Lincrusta panelling was applied in the mid to late twenties when No 1 Northumberland Place became a commercial premises, an estate agents in fact.
Still, we can enjoy it for what it is.
Here's to a comfortable weekend. .
