I promise you, this picture was not photoshopped. The house looks just like that.
It was built circa 1612 and it is known as the old King's School shop - not a hotel as a lot of people seem to believe.

Wow. It looks like it's all about to come down. And I certainly don't feel much better about it after having read the report to which you linked. Is there a current occupant?

Wow, that's really neat! It looks in great shape too considering it's age and that it's built at a tilt!

I remember this place. Thanks, Rose. Lovely to see it again.

This building reminds "Louis" of a leaning house he saw in Troyes, France. The house leans from age and structural weakness, yet still stands and is (or was when "Louis" saw it), still occupied. If "Louis" recalls correctly, it was built in the 1400s.

Oh my goodness. It's amazing it hasn't fallen down!
