Buckland Abbey 2

Well here it is. It is not a spectacular building but it is interesting and, of course, the connection to Drake makes it an important part of our history.

Sometimes interesting is better than spectacular. It looks a lovely building and the half open door is tempting me to enter....
Bill Phillips: It is a fine building and full of interest. Well worth a visit

It makes me feel sick to the stomach to have to confess that this is rather good Bill. I laugh at Dick calling you William.
Bill Phillips: What is with you and old Tiffo. Is it my turn to pay for lunch?
It doesn't have to be big to be interesting as you say Bill, it looks good in mono.
Bill Phillips: I liked it in mono Brian
It looks as if part of this was demolished looking at the lines in the centre on the tower.
Bill Phillips: Various bits have been added and I think they also had a fire in the 1930's
A beautiful building Bill and very well presented in b&w.
Bill Phillips: Pleased you like it Laurette

Hmmmm.. a fine building but you've made me wonder what it would look like in colour. I don't think that it needs to be spectacular; it appears to be full of interest.
Bill Phillips: It looks very nice in colour Alan
The b&w treatment works really well here Bill. Strong image.
Bill Phillips: Thanks John. Much appreciated
For some reason, Bill, this marvellous B&W reminds me of the old British films from the '30's.
Bill Phillips: I think i can see what you mean Beverly

A little different from my present dwelling, Bill.
