- Welsh Marches
Sorry, that wasn't directed at you; I'm perfectly willing to respect the relevant poster's point of view (it's not compulsory to like old buildings) but I think we got the message the first time that he told us!I think we can respect each others' points of view, no?
On an unrelated point, I wonder if we can appreciate certain buildings more as ruins rather than as restorations.
I have of a view of a ruined castle from my window, I would shoot anyone who tried restore it. Over-restoration of an insensitive kind can wreck a building (as with Windsor Castle in my view), but people are much more conscious of the need for authenticity nowadays.
