Wightwick Manor

Wightwick Manor (pronounced wittick) was built in 1887 for the Manders family who were Wolverhampton paint, varnish and ink manufacturers. The house is designed in the ‘Old English’ style of timber and brick and influenced by the Aesthetic and Arts and Crafts movement.

Here the ‘grid‘ is definitely the star.

A Word a Week Challenge: Yellow

Every week Sue from ‘A Word in Your Ear’ dips into her English Oxford dictionary and picks a word on the page that it falls open at. The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe what that word means to you.

Yellow is an unusual colour for houses to be painted, but here in Ludlow there are two. Both timber-framed buildings with the frames revealed.
