  1. what do you think about this old house? Let me think, this is very old house and there wasn’t modern heating system at that time and now, there is modern heating system and it could be very hot and the house expanding, ect. also the sounds too… It is almost related with the temparatures… for me 🙂

    1. Not cold tonight but look at this… Some very strong winds are expected on Thursday in association with storm Doris with gusts of 60-70 mph likely, and 70-80 mph on coasts and hills.

      Whilst the strongest winds look to be only short-lived, damage to structures, interruptions to power supplies and widespread disruption to travel networks are likely, with a danger of injury from flying debris. Trees are also likely to be damaged or blown over.

      Heavy rain is also likely through Thursday as well as some snow over high ground as the system clears eastwards. These may prove additional hazards.

      The warning has been updated to extend the at-risk area southwards.

      There is still some uncertainty about the track of storm Doris, but increasing confidence that there will be widespread disruption across parts of England and Wales.

    1. Hard to say. It is 3 buildings, none of which was originally a house. The main house next door was built in 1756-7 for Joseph Tomkins. The Tomkins were among the leading families of the town; they were prominent members of the local Baptist Church and successful businessmen in the malt trade and, later, banking. But all this is later. But I suspect the middle section is not much later. It is clearly older than the bit I am in now which was built as a chicken coup. At some point in Victorian times the wall next to me was knocked down and rebuilt (windowless). The middle bit was part of a washroom structure aligned the other way which also covers the neighbours.
