SP7006 : House in Thame High Street

taken 3 years ago, near to Thame, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

House in Thame High Street
House in Thame High Street
Rather handsome - though there is no regular spacing of bays,and the two floors seem out of step with each other. The brickwork is eye-catching, as is often the case in Thame - bricks in a variety of colours, including vitrified blue.

One curious detail is the blocked ground-floor window, transformed into a recessed niche - with urn.

I'd find it hard to guess at a date for this building - though those neat first-floor windows would suggest the 1780's.
