Who Lived in a Place Like This?
« on: Saturday 03 October 20 14:49 BST (UK) »
Looking for ideas as to where this might be. It's a postcard with nothing on the back. Not sure if it will help but I bought when in Grasmere in the Lake District recently.
Answers on a postcard please  :P ;D ;D

My first thoughts would be alms houses  or an Oxbridge* college.

* reminds be a little of Clare College, Cambridge - inner quad

Added - just looked at some images of inside court yard of Clare- not the same- memory playing tricks.

My first thought was some kind of ecclesiastical dwelling.

Almshouses?

Grace and favour houses?

The doors are quite odd - they look very secure.  :)

Added: I like Gadget’s college idea better.  :)

I must admit G. I was thinking along the same lines.
