Green house at Teignmouth

Green house at Teignmouth
We spent the day at Teignmouth a nice little town on the coast down here in Devon. This building caught our attention as it was lit up by the sun with a moody sky behind. A pity we couldn't get a higher view (or knocked down the building in front). By the way; it turns out it's pronounced 'Tinmoth'.

We also found out that there's a bit of rivalry between the Cornish pasty and the Devon version called a 'Tiddy Oggi'. I think I got the spelling right.

Our little corner of Devon

Our Street
Here is a pic of our street. You can just about see the green hill in the distance. When we first looked at the place, to buy, last year; walking down this little street was a really good omen. As you can see, we have no parking place but that means no-one else has either which means no enormous white van parked right outside your front window.

Apparently a fire destroyed (or should I say "raized" - why not, it's not often one gets the chance to use that word) half the town at the end of the 18th century and was rebuilt by the local squire. So our house is just over 200 years old.
