    Default The Hobbits House


    Been done to death I know but ever since I saw this pop up Iv wanted to see it for myself & it didn't disappoint.
    If you dont know the story its believed the farmer built this for his sheep & famously said "I got a bit carried away" while building it. I have to say its quite well built, the attention to detail in places is extraordinary.
    I really didnt expect the intricate mouldings & quite so many stained glass panels!

    Iv heard rumours the landowner here is not the most agreeable type so this called for a 4am start so I was in by half 6, this did give me some excellent light to work with
    Anyway on with the pics

    For sheep haha! They had other plans..
    It's great to see the results from when people allow their imagination to wander. It's quite a surreal structure and beautiful too. Just a shame it's not being lived in..
    Full of meaty goodness.

    I wonder if its ever had planning permission?
    To be fair the "living space" in it is tiny.. prob couldn't achieve a worse use of space if u tried lol

    [QUOTE=BikinGlynn;359609]I wonder if its ever had planning permission?/QUOTE]

    I am told it is classed as a 'Folly' - hence no planning was needed back when this was constructed. However I have not been able to verify this version of the Planning Regs or even if Regs were in place at that date.
