This is the Old Blacksmiths shop built 1845 at Gonelston near Nottingham,not the best photos but perhaps of some interest to someone...

Another great pic, Cowboy. I'm starting to wonder if we should rename the Pic of the Week to Cowboy's Pic of the Week. :twisted:

Just a thought, is it not considered to be unlucky to have the horseshoe upsidesdown? The luck runs out that way. :?

Any comments?

Interesting picture Cowboy

Reminded me of one of my 'interesting building' photos.
How's this for a small council chamber?....just room enough for one councillor, a pot of tea and some buttered toast.
This building is located just along the coast a few miles from where we live.

Hi Mojan

What does the building consist of? Is it just a room with a desk, chair, telephone, etc? Is it used? C'mon, share the info!

This could be another photo of the week if you give us the right caption. :D

And you have more interesting building photos??? :twisted:

Hi Kay
I have to be perfectly honest and say that I don't know very much about this building that I stumbled across quite by accident one day, when I had got myself a tiny bit lost when out walking. :lol: (Oh Yes! I can laugh about it now....but when you have been plodding along for the best part of 4 hours and no idea where you are....it's no laughing matter I can tell you! :lol: )

I came across this building and read the sign across the front that said 'COUNCIL CHAMBER' and wondered how the heck they would manage to hold any sort of a council meeting there (or whether they still do...maybe there is a bigger and better council chamber just around the corner)....I was a bit intent on trying to find my way home at that stage, but just couldn't pass up the oppurtunity of taking a photo.

However I shall do some investigating and try and come back to you with a 'story'........(but I thought you might have had enough 'interesting buildings' for the mag by now! :lol: )

Thanks, Mojan :D

It would be interesting to know more, but if you're too busy that would be enough for now. :D
