HFF from Westward Ho!

HFF from Westward Ho!
Westward Ho! the only town in the UK to have an exclamation mark as part of its name, but it was also named after a book. The name comes from Charles Kingsley’s book of the same name, which was a best seller and brought a new wave of tourism to his home town of Bideford, which led to the creation of Westward Ho! in the surrounding area.

Günter Klaus, Istvan Farkas, Doug Shepherd, Léopold and 55 other people have particularly liked this photo

Those colour houses are really attractive Rosa..............and I like the little porches too. Certainly no shortages of fences for you today!

Weather here is windy, wet and cold.......with strong winds and sleet forecast for tomorrow. I hope you're doing better :-)

Rosalyn Hilborne club
has replied to Keith Burton club
The terrace is twice as long Keith but there was too much scaffolding, so I just took half of the houses!

Not too windy yet, but I think something must have happened on the A303, as there is so much traffic going through the village.....some huge lorries!

Take care and have a great weekend.

I remember the book title, and I think there's also a movie with that same title?
I had no idea though that there's actually a town in the UK by that name. I love it! And I love those colorful and cheerful looking houses on that street! Do they all look like that in Westward Ho! ?

HFF, Rosayln, and have a wonderful weekend, ho! ;-)
2 months ago.
Rosalyn Hilborne club
has replied to Edna Edenkoben club
I will upload some pictures from the Kingsley Museum in Clovelly today (Saturday) Edna. At the time Westward Ho! was named, it would have been a very small village, with most houses looking like this, but unlike many places along that coast, it has many modern apartments and bungalows now, which are not ugly, but I do prefer the older houses and buildings.

Take care my friend and enjoy your weekend.
2 months ago.
Edna Edenkoben club
has replied to Rosalyn Hilborne club
I just commented the first museum photo you uploaded :-)
And I totally agree with you, I prefer the older houses as well, they're more charming. Although I myself live in a modern building of 1983, but perhaps that's considered "older" these days as well?? ;-)

Rosalyn Hilborne club
has replied to Edna Edenkoben club
My house was built in 1967 but I have only lived here for 20 years. My daughter's cottage is 300 years old and she loves it. An older house takes a lot more upkeep, but they do seem to be warmer!! :-)

A very colourful street, it's strange how at the coast the colours are quite acceptable inland there would be an outcry if a row of houses were painted like that. I hope you have a nice weekend Rosalyn it sounds as if tomorrow will be a good day for staying at home, a possibility of snow here 3 flakes !!

Rosalyn Hilborne club

Yes it does seem to suit coastal towns more Peter. It must be the special light!
It was an extremely windy night here but no snow and just a little rain. Better tomorrow I hope.

Hi Rosa
A wonderful and interesting picture, which I like very much!
Very nice composition, with great colours too.
My first thought was Portree in Scotland ( www.ipernity.com/doc/2247998/47068092 ) , but obviously not.
I've heard of a place called Titty Ho, and if I ever go there I share a photo!

Best Wishes, HFF, a nice week ahead, and stay safe!!
