One Day

 Hi everyone pics as promised.

Here is my poor old summer house I'll call it that because thats what I hope it will be one day. We have started to hack down the ivy but I think this is what's holding the roof together. there is a gaping hole between the two buildings.
Those are ivy roots on the side.

This is the side view, if I close one eye, it can in the right ligh,t look very Country Living  :) I am thinking of getting intouch with someone like that to see if they know of any grants that may be available as it is 1920's and would be such a shame to lose. I wouldn't mind even having an open summer house for charity if I could get something done.
I dream of bunting and seaside colours.

Ah well a girl can dream

Morning Cate,

What a wonderful summer house it would be. Have you been inside? Are there any treasures in there? It is really cool.

Mum did mentioned that they lived close to the golf course if that is any help. IF you search for Tennyson Road, Stockport, you can see it :) Tamara

Would you husband remember any Shorrock or Lake families living in the area when he was the paper boy?
