I know these buildings are still being used but one has to wonder how you can stand up in some of the bedrooms. :)
You can also see the effect of all of the recent rain on the thatch roofs: they are green with moss (as are quite a few of the trees). That can't be good for the longevity of the thatch so I bet there will be some work being done on them this summer.
I just love the beauty of the thatch. It makes me feel like I have stepped back in time to Ye Olde England. Let's hope it never disappears completely.
Taking everything together, I found Alrewas one of my favorite places so far. I hate to move on.
