British Rural Architecture

A joy of visiting British countryside is finding well preserved pretty cottage and beautiful gardens.  Materials of houses tell us how prepole in the area developed their house building method from what was available at that time.

イギリスの田園を訪れる楽しみのひとつは、よく保存された古い民家が今でも使われ、季節の花で飾られているのを見つけることです。その地方で採れる石や土、木などの素材が使われ、各地方でつちかわれた建築方法の生きた博物館のようです。
