Through the Oval Window.......



No not a ships porthole but a window belonging to a 16th century house. The house itself is in a ginnel known as Lady Peckitt’s Yard. Pevsner describes the border around the window as a frame of bricks set sawtooth-wise. An unusual design and rather attractive I think. Two other similar windows have been bricked up; wonder when this window was last opened?
