Iphone Shots: A bit of Lancashire Vernacular.

Came across this lively little vernacular accent of access cockled to the wall of the Grade II listed Hark to Bounty public house in Slaidburn, Lancashire. 

What I love about our vernacular buildings is the jocular, playful nature of the facades: not a level line in sight. The filled-in, elliptical attic windows to the eaves are the only nods to the polite. 

Even though the external staircase is a substantial thing, no matter how I look at the door above – there’s always a sense of it  floating in mid-air.

I love the ingenuity behind the attached ‘mounting-step’ – there to help people climb up and mount their horses. Wonder if it’s still used?

 The parts of our human heritage that appeal to me most, are the buildings, places and spaces that we have inherited. Photographing these places has gifted me with new ways of seeing.
