Thorpeness is an 'exclusive' purpose-built village with artificial boating lake and lovely homes. Thorpeness is unusual in that it was created in the early 1900s as a model seaside village, the old fishing hamlet of Thorpe having been bought and 'improved' by the Scottish landowner and playwright G. Scott Ogilvie.
We walked down a track, N. eating fat blackberries that were growing there, and found the windmill that was used to pump the water for the village and nearby the tank stand for storing the water. This tank is now converted into "The House in the Clouds" - a home and bed and breakfast. What a novel place for guests to spend the night!
N. was so focused on eating, I had time to take her picture at the instant John directed her gaze to the house.
