Yesterday I showed you the photographs I took at Oxford Island on our way to The Argory and today I am fitting into Tex’s meme GOOD FENCES and showing you a few walls at The Argory. Today you will only see the outside of the house however I will show you the inside of this beautiful maintained mansion next week.
Now I have been in contact with The Argory about the high door and the part of the building below the door was indeed a barn so i think Phil is right in suggesting that this is where they stored the hay for the cattle. I remember seeing this happen on a farm many years ago myself.
The Argory was built in the 1820s,and is a Neo-classical National Trust mansion. This handsome Irish gentry house is surrounded by its 130-hectare (320-acre) wooded riverside estate and below you see the view taken from the front of the house.
I hope you enjoyed today's post as there are lots more photographs to show you regarding The Argory.
Many thanks for your visit and also to all who leave comments.
