Bleak House not so stoned – not so bleak

The natural stonework of Bleak House is being painted white as you can see from the picture, this came as a bit of a surprise to me and I wondered what other people thought about this.

Click on the picture to enlarge it.


  1. Hoping someone was kidding you but little surprises me lately

  2. Perhaps they're turning into a Hiltons (Geddit!!???!!!?)

  3. Michael, Nothing to do with this post, but have you noticed that since the blog "makeovers" the counter on each article does not accurately reflect the number of comments. It is the same on ECR's blog

  4. I think the counter is only counting those with a Google Account, but appears to catch up Anonymous posts overnight.

  5. It seems that it only the crenellations that are being painted.

  6. 12.24 I took the picture myself this morning.

    Readit 13.22 I have shoved my recent comments thing up to the top of the sidebar until the glitch goes away.

    John and the stone work round the windows, I didn’t go up for a closer look as time was short.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
