It's not often you see a carefully rescued and restored privy!

Having never visited the town of Bromsgrove before I was delighted to find that it’s home to Avoncroft, a museum of historic buildings which have been rescued from demolition.

As a regular visitor to the Weald and Downland Museum in Sussex, it was interesting to compare the two and I found many similarities in the types of buildings around the site, from the tin church to a Tudor house. However, it also had some more recent examples, including a post-war prefab house. The architecture may have been very mundane, but I still found plenty of interesting period details to photograph.

I've not been to Avoncroft but have visited the Weald and Downslands museum. This looks really interesting 😊
