I absolutely love nosing around salvages places and Dorset Reclamation didn't disappoint. There was so much to take in and such good variety too: Garden ornaments, outside furniture and gazebos, fire places, baths, loos, mirrors, windows, gates, doors, door knockers and handles, wood .. you name it, they had it!
I could very happily have taken home these two stone planters but sadly the price tags were enough to force me to walk on ..
I think I may have a selection of these when I have my Georgian rectory in the country ..
Interesting display of goods ..?
I love these staddle stones, which were originally used as supporting bases for granaries, hayricks and game larders. The stones lifted the granaries above the ground to protect the stored grain. Nowadays they are a part of our agricultural heritage and very much synonymous with the English countryside, certainly in Dorset where they are seen by the sides of roads or as traditional garden features.
Oh yes, and they had butlers' sinks too .. which is really why we went.
My new herb garden.
Have a lovely week, rumour has it it's going to be good!
