Gentlemens reading room.

Gentlemens reading room.

Taken saturday morning in a gap in the fog.
It may look like a hen house now, but the 19th century gentlemen of Hill End, miners and quarrymen and strict Methodists,
built this because they needed a place where the could go to read the Bible
.........yeah.........right.

Really like this. The light, the distant bit of lighted hillside and the great collection of farm animals around the stone hut. Just great. Vote.
