The Grange

I noticed that this weekend was one of the all-too-rare occasions when the Grange on the West Cliff was open to visitors. Well worth a visit, and a great insight in to the architectural style of Pugin, and his radical approach to designing a house according to its intended function, rather than keeping to the traditional styles prevalent at the time.

This image is taken from a November 1879 issue of the Building News, and provides a highly detailed birds-eye view of the Grange, dated 1873.

missed it again, I never seem to know it's open until after the event.
