Real Style
This huge fanlight is going to be built into a new build, which is being made of straw (which reminds me I must go and see how he's getting along). It is wider than he imagined so, rather than give up on the project, he is just going to make the building bigger. If you look for a problem you will find one. I like people who look for solutions.

By the way, the clock-house with port-cullis over the canal basin is at the entrance to the old Ordnance Depot here in Weedon.  Construction started in 1804 to confound any threat to us from Napoleon's armies.
