Thursday- Lingering look at Windows- week 22

Where might I linger this week?  I’ll be getting myself talked about!  I believe I promised you some English windows.  Now, how to present them?

You know I spent the weekend in Nottingham?  The above was the venue for the book launch of “Steampunk Apothecary”.  If you want to see some of the antics, have a look at An extraordinary, but delicious, affair.

The Malt Cross Cafe is an historic grade 2 listed building and we were fortunate to have the use of the upper gallery.  Below, there’s a bar which sells delicious savouries.

Nottingham isn’t short on interesting venues, and windows.

The previous weekend I was in Newcastle-on-Tyne and found myself very taken with these windows.  I think the building is currently being used just for office space, but at least it’s still there in all its glory.

 

England’s towns and cities have some of the loveliest windows you’ll ever see.

Did you stroll through my galleries?  We really must stop meeting like this.  It’s getting to be a habit.

So, what do you think?  Can England take on Poland and Portugal in the windows challenge?  Thanks Dawn for providing me with a little more fun this rain-soaked English day.

Don’t forget to check out the other Lingering Windows entries, and maybe participate?

  1. Pretty architectural details you’ve highlighted here, Jo. The unique, whimsical details are one characteristic of Europe that I appreciate very much. Here’s hoping you have some sunshine in your corner of Europe today!

  2. Filigree at Whitney Abbey and “Backs” in gorgeous green are my fave here but it’s hard to decide which post windows were best. I think, maybe, England. Maybe. But I just don’t know.
    Fabulous, Jo.
