The area around here seems to attract it's own special breed of eccentrics...
In the garden of a bungalow above Corris there's an homage to a lifetime of holidays in Italy. A local Chicken Farmer and Caravan Park owner loved their family holidays so much that in 1980 he decided to recreate the Italian architecture in his own garden using cement, chicken wire, and other building materials.
35 years on it's now sadly slipping back in to the forest, the owner died in 2012, and since then it doesn't look as if much is being done to maintain it.
We visited just before the New Year, and I freely admit to getting snap happy as everywhere I looked there was something that made me smile with it's delightful quirkiness.
This is only the top half of the garden, so hopefully gives you a sense of the scale of the place...
If you're in the area then it's well worth a trek up the hill to take a look at. This map shows you where to find it.
Next up, brick close ups... seriously, there's some lovely examples of locally made house bricks in some stunning colours!
