New angle

I don't know whether she still does, but my sister used to really like spiral staircases, to the point of taking unnecessarily long routes from 'A' to 'B' via 'Q' because a particularly attractive example was visible from the street at 'N'.  I've never felt the same sort of "want!" reflex about stairs... until now.

These triangular steps are hideously impractical, of course – too narrow for anything bulky to be carried up them, and about as steep as a stepladder, but they look good.

I saw the basic design last summer, in fact, on the roof of Dolwyddelan Castle in North Wales, and preferred that less boxy execution, but still... want!
