Munstershire

 

Haus Brock nr. Roxel/ Münster, one of the many moated manor houses in our area, still in private ownership and waiting for some restoration - in the beginning of September many monuments were opened to the public and we could visit this ensemble of houses (17th century) for the first time.

 

Many thanks for yesterday's comments!

Another very good collage, Philine...I like how you use this presentation style to tell the story.
Philine: I like to post collages to give a kind of overview. Many thanks, Ray!
I like walkways through / under things! These are very nice shots to illustrate the place for us!
Philine: Many thanks, Elizabeth! We have here still summerdays, a bit crazy I think.

This looks like very unusual architecture to me? Is it typical of that date in Munstershire?
Philine: Yes, the brickstone style is typical. Many thanks, Lisl!

I remember you saying about the open season of these buildings. There is a theme of height amongst them and I do like the state they are in, even though they are in need of repair.
Philine: Each year we have the open monuments days, I think they are also in other European countries like UK, The Netherlands ... - the repair of these old builds is often a problem and a question of money. Unfortunately, we don't have a NT -like institution in Germany. Many thanks, Chad!

This place looks to be both solid and charming Philine. A joy to visit I'm sure
Philine: Yes, these old manor houses once owned by rich farmers or lower nobility are a joy to visit. Many thanks, Chris, we are enjoying still summerdays here.

Oh how wonderful that these builds are open for a time so others to enjoy. I especially like the building bottom left; I would be happy living there - assuming that it did not need anything other than a lick of paint. smile
Philine: Oh, I am not sure if there are Wifi, one of your essentials, and other comforts. The apartments in the restored building top right would be suitable for you. Many thanks, Alan, we have still summer weather at about 24 degr. C.
Voilà  un manoir qu'il me plairait de découvrir , très belle architecture
Philine: Merci beaucoup, Claudine! Il y a beaucoup de manoirs ici.
Some of these houses seem to be quite tall but also quite narrow, is that a local style.
Philine: They were storage houses and stables for the horses, cows and pigs. We visited one of them. Rich farmers or landlords were the former owners of those ensemble of houses. Nowadays they will be offices or apartments, but much change has to be done. Many thanks, Brian!
Your moated manor houses are a delight Philine
