Photographer's Note

This is one of the numerous old baking houses here in my region. This one is situated in a group of houses (a farm and forester's house) surrounded by forests in an altitude of about 580 m. It recently was reconditioned. Using the map "view" function at the left you can see it's situation shown by the marker there. Zooming in by clicking at + you can see that it's nearly hidden by the trees around.
Many of the today's villages here in southern Westphalia are in possession of those baking houses. I love them ...

More about these baking houses you can read in my yesterday's post with some links to other baking house pictures.

In the foreground of my photo you can see one of the victims of the hurricane Kyryll which raged here last January. It's the very old gnarled oak which stood next the baking house - a wonderful "team" which was pictured in many calendars and illustrated books.
In the background you can see some hikers who are resting here. This baking house is situated next to the very popular hiking trail "Rothaarsteig".
