The Old Mill House at St.Fagans

bronzebilly u.k. (Barry,Vale of Glamorgan, United Kingdom) on 3 November 2007 in Architecture and Portfolio.

This is an image of an old mill house taken at the Museum of Welsh Life which is only 15 mins.from my place..
We took a ride there yesterday as it was unusually warm weather for Autumn....
The museum covers a huge area of forestry,and within this area are about 50 buildings which have been transported brick by brick from all parts of Wales,and rebuilt.The oldest building is from the 12th century.
This is the first shot of a small series...billy

Fantastic BillyB, your wonderful pp adds a special touch to this lovely old building. It sounds a great place to visit. even more so as it is in a forest, I could imagine that you could visit here at different seasons and it would look different with each visit.
Wonderful work :)

Hey billy!

Sorry it's been ages, work caught up with me a bit.

I read your comment from the beach photo I posted 2 October and looked at yours from the 1st. It is very possible we on the other end of the beach taking photos. Kind of a cool theory. :)

Great photo you have of the mill posted today. Old and modern at the same time! Talk to you soon.

This is a really lovely effect - the toning and the frame go so well with the feel of the old mill building. Sorry it's been a while since I posted! The one before this with your grandson is just great work! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the Museum Series - nice when you have somewhere so close to home worth photographing like this! I kinda missed posting to you - and your hilarious comments on my blog - but I can't post every day now because I have so many other things I have to do! So don't give me hell because your are not my top priority!! ;-)

This sorta looks like one of the Led Zepplin album covers. I think it was Led Zepplin, either way I love the mysterious feel to this. I thought you were going to tell us it was haunted.
