Wobbly house

Neighbours. They support us and lend a shoulder to lean upon when tired. Also handy when you run out of sugar, or, in the case of this house, when you need a pint at the end of a long day on your feet.

Lancaster is full of old buildings, many of which suggest today that planners in Georgian and Victorian times didn't pay as much attention to issues of subsidence as they might have done. But they designed damn fine windows, eh?

( These buildings can be seen on St Georges Quay, along Lancaster's riverfront )
