The Wagon Works


This was the post I meant to post last week, it was the old Wilders Wagon Works shop in Wallingford.

The works where they were built was along the lane to the right
As you can see it is now a milliners
 I must go and see if I can take some photos of the hats inside the shop
But this is what I love most is seeing this weather vane on top of the building, a relic of its distinguished past. Taking Part in Our World Tuesday.

  8. What a great old building. I would be interested to see if you are able to take pictures inside the store. We have a great hat shop in town but the do not allow pictures to be taken inside for some unknown reason. That weather vane is a treasure!
