Sorry lads, I know, I know…I’m a complete interloper on this topic. I’m amazed at the level of research posted on these pages though.

I came across these images over the Christmas and thought I might post them for interest. Not Dutch Billies as such but certainly stunning examples of the decorative gable style common to the Hanseatic area of northern Europe. The town is Luneburg, to the south of Hamburg, a stunning small heritage town. A must see if you get to Hamburg.

Comparisons with Smithfield or Newmarket eh?

Interestingly, notice a lot of windows are actually uPVC. Its quite common in Germany. The Town Hall is the piece de resistance of the town but strangely I don’t have a photo (bar one with my fat mug in it!)
