    Who else here enjoys historic buildings? We have started a FB group for anyone who does to connect. So share your restoration projects ect.

    I love historic buildings! We went for a drive last week and we found this lovely old house that is just sitting there falling to pieces. So sad. But I had a lovely time exploring it and took loads of pics. And no, I didn't break in, the door was broken LOL

    If you like it, I'll send you the other pics I took of the interior. It's a bit of a mess though. Really sad. It must've been a stunning place. I love places like this. I just want to go rescue them!

    I can't say what it is about them. Maybe the mystery... You can't help wondering what they've been through, what they can tell you if they could speak. I especially love castles and monasteries. They are so full of history!
    Whenever I see an old abandoned building like the one in the pic I posted I think what I could do with it, how I'd like to fix it and renovate it. If I were a rich man... LOL
