Monochrome Weekly: The Clergy House, Alfriston

I took this image in 1994, when I was experimenting with Black and White 35mm film in my fixed focus Vivitar camera.

This is The Clergy House in Alfriston East Sussex where I used to live up until 2003.

You can find details about the building at these sites:

National Trust



Monochrome Weekly Theme is a concept by Aileni

Nice print. Reminds me of my childhood in Devon - all that deep Summer foliage.

I love the way the house fits into its environment. Great shot.

@Aileni: Devon is very pretty too, the village was very busy in the Summer.

@Carver: Yes its such a nice setting I think.

@Kilauea Poetry: It dates from 1300's but it wasn't actually built as a Clergy House, it was built for a wealthy farmer. I will do and you:)
