More architectural detail in the form of building ties and on this gable end the blacksmith has gone all ecclesiastical with his art. There are a couple more mundane examples below and it seems obvious that the owners don't like them as much; they haven't even been given a coat of nice new, shiny black Hammerite.
There are always a few questions asked when you look at these old buildings a little more closely; a small window has been blocked-up but two neat, round holes are visible. What for? We think to facilitate the entry of birds for nest building. Possibly.
Meanwhile it's a pity the electrician didn't work as neatly or as artistically as the blacksmith.
