My Favourite Things ~ ‘Arrow Slits’

Category: Favourite Things February 3rd, 2008 by mbc

With a project like this it is sometimes easy to allow the big picture to overwhelm the little things.

arrow slit or ventilation shaft

It is often the little things that make the whole thing seem worthwhile at the beginning. So, in appreciation of the little things, I thought I’d put together a series of posts on those features that add texture, detail and richness to the whole and that make it all seem worthwhile.

I always get corrected when I refer to the ventilation slits in the wall of the barn as arrow slits. But the little boy who loved castles is irrepressible when it comes to medieval features.

I’m really pleased with this picture as it lines up the slit in both sides of the building so that you can see right through. From the inside, they reveal teasing glimpses of the outside and when hit by the sun give fantastic vertical shafts of light.

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…
