    Not to put too fine a point to it, but we call the colour of the paintwork ‘ Merde ‘. It was around in the 16C ?

      You mean the paintwork of the actual windows? That’s an interesting question. Maybe Susan has the answer. I would assume they would have been oak coloured. The street is full of listed buildings such as this one but when you see some of the details you wonder what the National Monument architect was doing. It’s obviously who you are friends with :).
