  1. You're kidding when you said that the lodge was painted pink, right? Can't picture seeing a structure in pink!

  2. Yep it was painted pink. A sign of wealth. Most of our Tudor buildings are preserved incorrectly - black and white. In fact wooden beam supports would not have been painted black at all. The whole building would have been painted in a single colour - similar to this building which is currently white.
