The Round House: June 9, 2015

Off I went, up Pipes Passage, under the clock, & saw rising at the top of the sloping path a singular shaped roof, rising into a point, & spreading into a circular petticoat all round it. . . An elderly and humble cottage woman the owner, showed me over.  How far my satisfaction with the small rooms, & the view, & the ancient walls, & the wide sitting room, & the general oddity & character of the whole place were the result of finding something that would do. . . I don't know, but as I inspected the rooms I became conscious of a rising desire to settle here.
