    No i think i was stupid enough to think they would all be at roughly the same height ie between 18" and 36" but they get done at all different heights .

    Spotted another one this afternoon whilst driving so will bag that one over the weekend if poss ^_^

    Most of the ones I've seen are at the 12 inch height or less.

    Almost every house in the village has a name, but I'm not sure of this one?

    It's to the left corner; https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3939938



    1. As far as I'm aware, every house in the village has some kind of preservation order/listing to its credit
    It's an entire 'Conservation Village'
