The Conduit,Sherborne

The Conduit at the bottom of Sherborne's South Street

The hexagonal 16th-century structure originally stood in the north cloisters of the abbey, where it was used for washing by the monks.

It was moved to this site after Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539.
Rosie and I will be going to Kos tomorrow,until the beginning of February.She still has a lot of paperwork to sort out.also,she has a lot of problems to think about since George's death.She's hoping to eventually bring the car back to the UK.It's just a year old,cost 30,000 euros,and now she's only been offered 18,000euros.After their hard work being able to afford the car,she's not prepared to lose such a lot of money.also,she has to think about selling the house,and then whether she can bring the money into the UK without being taxed too much.If she comes home,she doesn't know whether George's pension(when it eventually comes through,can take a year or more) will be transferred to the UK. Brexit is making a lot of this, up in the air.
A really lovely building. So interesting that it was moved, I guess brick by brick! Just the other day I wondered how Rosie is doing. My, so much to consider and so much of it out of her hands. I know she is so glad you can go to Kos to help.

A lovely image of this historic building - and an interesting bit of history included here ! Coming to terms with the death of a loved one is never easy and the problems it brings doesn't make things easier to bare - I wish her well

good presentation of the historic building. So difficult a situation for Rosie and yourself. I do hope you are able to make progress in sorting some of these things before too long. (Brexit has a lot to answer for).
