Tracey - (someone will correct me) I don't think it makes very much difference.

You're right, KEF.....I have louvered windows in the bottom row of glass in my GH and they are really useful in hot weather.

This topic has been raised before and as I said then, I had found a Elizabeth 1st coin dated 1562 in some gravel I have had since the mid-sixties....I have pics, but I've already shown them before and would hate to bore peeps with them.

I've not visited since Arthur B emigrated to New Zealand, Forester, but I think it's probably part of a bye-pass of Ombersley.....deffo a road.
