Building Ridges…

Before we left the lovely Mr and Mrs G, they kindly let us copy photos of their house since the 60’s showing how their ridge has changed.

The Victorians introduced the decorative block ridges and they became more popular after the second world war. In the following photos you can see this roof’s journey from flush ridge, through highly decorated, and now settling in with it’s neighbour the museum.img_4084img_4080img_4083img_4058

Note how poor the condition of the museum roof is in the earliest photo!
