    Default The Calligrapher's Cottage [Sacred Cottage] November 2013


    Not much history for this little place nestled far away in the countryside, hidden by hills with quite a spectacular view of the surrounding hills. I spent 4 hours inside this gem snapping away furiously accompanied by the sound of radio 4 blasting out from a nearby farm [boy, radio 4 is dull but beats the usual scary sounds one hears in these places]
    Not sure of the lives of the people who lived here, I think the chap was a teacher but it's obvious he had a penchant for the artistic side of life from the apparatus and books left in the house. A lot of personal artefacts remain, a nice ammount of decay and just a little bit of danger here and there on the upstairs floors to keep me on my toes.

    Have a peak inside the Calligrapher's Cottage, it's rather nice............


















































    Thanks for looking folks

    Not just Russian, but all the other Orthodox Churches too. There are about 24 of 'em around the world, forming a sort of confederation. Russian variety is by far the largest, but "only" 1000 years old, so quite new as these things go.

    This useless factoid brought to you in the hope of one day being helpful in a pub quiz.

    My best friend is an Orthodox deacon oop north, and his Godfather is an iconographer. There aren't many iconographers in the UK, and I have a feeling that this cottage was once inhabited by one. I will make enquiries and see if I can discover anything else about the place.

    You bugger! So much stuff I didn't spot. Looks like I'll have to revisit. Superb shots James, nailed again.
    There can be no true beauty without decay.
