Straight Forwards


As promised on Monday: further pictures exploring the interior of Helen's Tower. The tower boasted a quite modern kitchen and facilities, so it was only after you walked up the spiral staircase to the third floor and opened the ancient wooden door to this chamber that you felt you had truly stepped into the past. Elaborately painted ceiling, ornate wallpaper, narrow arching windows--check, check, check! This sitting room was where Thomas and I spent most of our time; enjoying a little cider in the evening, sitting in front of the fire as the wind whipped around the tower, even playing the occasional board game--the room managed to convey both the grandeur of a forgotten time and be welcoming and cozy enough that on grey days I never wanted to leave.
