May 27th – I’m developing a casual interest in the architectural quirks of chimneys. It’s something I’m going to cover on my main blog at some point soon, but in looking for stuff to photograph while out on my bike for this project, I’m noticing more and more things about the world around me. This is not trivial, I’m absolutely serious.
There is something about a nice chimney that completes a house – a roof looks bare without one. This example, on the derelict and abandoned Pear Tree Cottage pub in Albutts Road, Brownhills West, was clearly built to do the business. If only a buyer could be found to breathe life into this lost pub once again.
