Priory Lodge




This is Priory Lodge, only a few metres from the house in the last post.

The house looks really impressive from the front, it has a lovely walled garden and a row of quirky houses, Priors Row, to one side.

I might show the house from the front at some point but I love this side view, hidden from view to all but the snooper, because of the colour contrast between the ivy on the wall in the foreground and the red climber on the house.

Apparently Taunton had its priory built in 1125 but moved it in 1158 so the fact that this is called Priory Lodge is purely because of its location on the old site.

Welcome! I'm envious as usual. Any building that looked like that in the US would probably be less than 100 years old, certainly not nearly a 900 years old. I like the vine too and the the grape vine in the previous photo. I've never seen that either.
