    The windows need to open quickly from inside in the event of fire, I expect. Bars would be detrimental and probably just as expensive as the replacement double-glazed lockable Crittall frames. A rough count suggests there's 140 frames, most with 6 panes.

    Much of the country is reliant on 3mm single glazed panes, I'm scarcely unique in that regard.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Golly what happened to you sucks. The last place I lived was plagued by property crime. Mostly car burglaries and anything left outside not nailed down. One day some idiot came up to my porch to take my bike and it was all I could do to keep my friend from beating that fool senseless.

    3mm glass is probably illegal in any replacement windows these days.....elf and safety don't ya know.

    And lockable windows are in my opinion a waste of time and only a sales gimmick. With or without the lock anyone wanting access would have to break the glass because they all have multiple locking points, workable only from inside via the handle.
    You want toughened stepped units to replace the 3mm glass you have now, crittal windows last forever with a little maintanance.

    I like that. You thought you knew about this until you opened your mouth.

    I actually do know quite a lot about windows and glass as it happens..........not a lot about other stuff though.

    I understand
    Yet when I read the statement ..a profound statement took over my conscious for a few minutes.
    The thought was just more powerful than what I was paying attention to at The time.

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    What are you doing outside of the religious threads anyway ?

    Re: Where's Spot

    The summer hols in the West Country seems to be a time when burglaries happen. There are a lot of summer holiday homes with poor security and families on hol in them, so out all day. I remember about 35 years ago we were burgled under those circumstances. My mother lost her jewellery - insured but the sentimental value can't be covered.

    I have a vague memory that we were told it was because burglars from Birmingham also go on holiday...Looking back I wonder why they were so sure it wasn't local.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    My holiday cottage is a great deal more secure than the Hall, and often warmer.

    Anyone on FG who fancies a week in Cornwall during term time is welcome to use the cottage as their base. It's easier to get about if you bring some form of transport with you but other than that it's trouble-free. Sleeps five. I've never suggested Cornwall as a venue for a FG meet because it's so distant from civilized parts but there might be the nucleus of an offer there. We did London twice, we did Birmingham, we did Cropredy, perhaps this is FG 2018.
