Your handiwork makes it clearer as ever ;). What was off-putting in this case was the apparent symmetrical positioning of the perpendicular pitches, which it turns out – as with others of this type – are steeper to the centre than to the outer slopes, which isn’t as evident from the air. Is it correct to say that most double-pile roofs we know of share this characteristic? It doesn’t appear to be the case. Bachelor’s Walk looks symmetrical, as do most of the quayside houses. Cork Street verges on the former type though, as does the Molesworth house if I recall.
