Because we did not have a guide and not even any leaflets when we went sightseeing in Broadway, I have found it very difficult to identify the houses in my photographs. But this particular house is a notable exception. The reason is simple - it is the only house with a clock on it. Though named Tudor House it is not Tudor at all, it has no half-timbering so characteristic of that period and it was built later - in 1660. Once it was an inn called the Angel, a school and a private house. It now houses one of the best antique galleries in the Cotswolds. Look at their pieces of wonderful 17th, 18th and 19th century furniture and perhaps get something if you can afford it and know how to transport it to your country.
The clock was restored in 1997 by public subscription and it contains a time capsule to be opened by a future generation.
