Knowing How To Age Buildings Helps

I help out at a historic country house in the middle of a ripe collection of them. This particulr county has many heritage properties – being slap bang in the middle of ‘civil war country’. This few months tragically split families and terrible damage was done throughout the land, but the midlands bore the brunt. Landownders obviously had to take sides and sort out their allegiences – a very dodgy business indeed. Many a family has had members dragged off to the tower to a very dismally sticky end! Their houses were then confiscated and we are jolly lucky to still have any left. At least many of these buildings are still in tact, so we are able to visit and see for ourselves how a palladian mansion looks or a tudor manor house with original dirt floor kitchen.
