Devizes - trial layout - part 2 - market place

I had forgot when setting out the buildings for Devizes that I had a range of buildings I made for Pokesay castle; adding this in just about pads things out.
I was left with one big gap which was the market place - the idea I had was to use some simple low relief buildings; I had a search for some images online I could doctor and found two of buildings in Lavenham (Suffolk), I also found a couple of book illustrations that were suitable. After some scanning and scaling of images I stuck them on thick card and touched in and altered them as needed.

I arranged the buildings I had and then fixed the low-relief flat houses to my gaming table backscene - the marketplace:
A lower down view, more front on ...
I am well pleased with the result.

It looks very good . . . and saves table space as well. Brilliant, sir.

Very handy, I've been thinking of making something similar for a long time, but never getting around to it. This seems a much quicker solution
