I've been wanting to make a photograph within the lone, restored Kingsley cabin during heavy rain to capture the runoff from the gutterless roof.  It was finally possible today, and my luck was spot on as I arrived there, walked to the cabin, set up my kit, and framed a first image just as the rain began in earnest.  The cabins originally had wooden shutters, but the windows were glassless.  In summery weather, it must have been oppressively humid and buggy to live here..but,  the manor house was no less so in that era before even the idea of air conditioning existed.
