This is a Round House that was taken on our last trip to the UK a few years ago, and is located at St.Fagins Museum of Welsh Life, not far from Cardiff in Wales.
The smoke is from the fire which is located on the floor in the centre of the dwelling.. And as the smoke rose it was as clear as anything at the bottom.
When building it originally, they found that by having a hole in the centre of the ceiling caused the thatch to catch fire. That’s why there is a cap on the very top point.
This period in time also holds a great fascination with me as I just love paganism and getting down to the earth and nature.
If you are planning to visit you must allow yourself at least a whole day. Just Brilliant.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    I usually stay with friends in Porthmadog in the north.
