Enfield Shaker Village

Filed under: architecture — Frank @ 11:00 PM

Today, I headed up to the Enfield Shaker Village. It is very different from its partner in Canterbury. Not nearly as bucolic and photogenic.

Many of the buildings are used for commercial purposes and the site is not at all secluded. The two main buildings, a church (which is not a Shaker structure) and the “Great Stone Dwelling” (the main residential building) are imposing stone edifices.

The many roof top ornaments in the neighborhood caught my eye on this mostly sunny day; any clouds around were high and thin.

  1. Nice series – even a few non-obscura for some of us. I did like shot one of the Chapel. The two obscura ones seem clearer than those from the past. do anything different??
