Very good to be able to view your photographs via your Link at long last. A Link is much better than nothing, Well done Lain. :thumbup:

Of course i have never seen that modern sliding metal entrance before, however i was fully aware of that corner nook to the wall from studying photographs of buildings to determine the angles best as i could before cutting my picture framing card out.

THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION

The total destruction of the battlefield leaving it now just a stark emptiness is the greatest loss of all to history.The all important ridge line destroyed with the resulting Lion Mound a blot on the landscape, and Bonniers Wood totally gone.

I`m not a historian, but feel that all this should be viewed as a contaminated crime scene. BB

Quite true BB !

Getting back to your image of the western door…, fascinating !
I now believe we are the only two on this planet who know about TWO western doors.

If you look carefully at the aerial view, we can see your bricks to the right of the main door. (above the midden)
If you look again at the byre’s interior, there’s a small step on the left. It stretched the whole length of the room. I couldn’t fathom out why the farmer had this because the cow muck would have needed to be lifted to the higher level, in order to be evacuated through the door.

However, it all makes sense now. Your bricked-up door was a second door and obviously used to evacuate the muck and there’s every possibility that the sliding metal door belonged to the midden. (and those trees were growing in the muck)
Because of it…, we are now more to the right and due to the angle of the image, we see the sky over the curtain wall. Lol…

In the meantime, these were modifications done to the farm when they had to abandon their apple production for cows. Meaning that in 1815, the midden and the second door surely wasn’t there.
However… They did have pigs in that room on the day of the battle !


…, Iain.

PS Susofrick…, thanks. I have experimented with this this image; hope it works ! If not, I’ll ask my grandson for help.

However…, I have still to understand why we have the same number of red bricks for another door.
Obviously the builder followed the same design !

Well it does sort of make some sense....... There were two doors according to the aerial photography at the time the aircraft passed over.
Upon reading your input Lain, A jog to my memory!!!! Many years ago i remember reading of a pigpen in the complex of Hougoumont, and a British soldier taking refuge there,lost his fingers on the door frame when that axe was swung after the break in by the French troops. i cannot remember the book, and i have never thought of his fingers flying since this very day.

The style of the rounded over door edged in stone, was i suppose the same size as the Chateau`s door near the little Chapel. The later a place that i find quite chilling to my nature and belief.

There is a map showing another gap in that lower wall whether it be a window, door or gate i do not know as the reference went way back to the Knights of Malta...... It was they who sold Bonnier Wood for silver coin.which makes a modern report on the age of the wood being 50 years old at the time of Waterloo, Utter Tosh! :mrgreen: Nonsense.
:coffee: As the wood existed during Medieval times. BB

Lain , BB,
Your discussion is a real entertainer. Well I knew there are button counters, but you are brick counters! That’s just elevating by an entire category. :-)
To me your love of this level of detail is bluffing, and really interesting.
Curious of the results

My old French toy soldiers enter the wood.

My new fantasy trees will be far more creepy than those in the picture displayed above.

Many Thanks Michael Robert.
Never been one for much brick counting myself,
but i have noticed the crosses the bricks form in the walls of Hougoumont.

i guess it is the teacher i have inside my head that always wishes to serve when i can.
Communications Skills, via writing can be highly rewarding at very odd times.
i made a living from it in many sways and ways.

:coffee: Always look up the little words,they reveal many an enlightenment BB
