Choristers House

My entry for Monday Window

At Fountains Abbey

This striking house has an interesting history; it was designed by the acclaimed architect William Burges and its name stems from its use as a music school. Inside you’ll find a careful restoration that captures much of Burges’ unique style. It sits within the 400 acre deer park of the Fountains Abbey estate, so it’s not unusual to see red, fallow and sika deer grazing on the parkland just outside. It is available to rent from The National Trust.

Studley Royal Fishing Pavilions

My entry for Monday Windows

The little fishing pavilions [a base for fishing trips] are at Studley Royal Water Garden which is next to Fountains Abbey. The garden was first started around 1716 and these buildings were probably part of the first construction. It was a good place to get out of the rain for a few minutes.

Central Arcade

My entry for Monday Window

This lovely old building is in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne and is an Edwardian shopping arcade built in 1906 and designed by Oswald and Son, of Newcastle. It is in the Central Exchange building, which was built by Richard Grainger in 1836–38 to the designs of John Wardle and George Walker. It is up for sale if anyone is interested, only £11.75m.
