Buildings worth modelling, Essex

 Monday morning - time for reflection. I note that the stats have died down a bit since the coverage of Tal-coed at Shepton.
Here's another one to ponder. En-route back from Cambridge (does anyone know why Came.. and not Cam?) I stopped at Saffron Walden for a cuppa and the above caught my eye in Gold Street. The thing that stands out is that the chimney stack is on the street side and not side or rear. I'm guessing that it may have been a smithy - large doors for horses - the shoeing of, and the fiery bit against the front wall. But is there room for it between the doors?
Whatever, it's a nice subject for a model.

  1. Agreed, lots of character there. Would make a great model. Any chance of large images please? Thank you.
