Apparently this is a good place for breakfast, I went to look at the architecture and learn more about its history. It is a joy to look at but, sadly I would have liked more information boards.

I didn't pay for a tour, but I did bike there with three couples and god knows how many kids between us. And I wish I had. The location is isolated and unassuming. Red brick buildings that could have been about 20 years old. A...More
