Kennel Capers by 'Mayo'

Susie Daniel of Knaresborough spotted last week's Dalmatians, housed at Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire, and sent a delightful card to boot. Champagne well deserved. This week's clue: Old Shep in the workhouse. Identify the hound, architect and kennel. Answers by Monday on a postcard (preferably doggy), addressed to AJ Astragal, 151 Rosebery Avenue, London EC1R 4QX. In emergency fax 0171 505 6701.

Not all of the celebrated Zonnestraal Sanatorium in Hilversum, Holland, looks quite like this - an atmospheric ruin, with ivy, nettles and long grass invading the wings where patients had their rooms. But most of Duiker, Bijvoet & Wiebenga's Modern Movement icon (1926-31) is empty and vulnerable, with windows broken, and successive plans for restoration so far unrealised. Will it be long before the dereliction here is irreversible?
