Stalybridge Saturday: Ivy Cottage


At first glance this pair of cottages could be from a pretty village somewhere. However, a closer look shows you that they are in the centre of Stalybridge. They are on Waterloo Road and are so central that they face the bus station.

The cottages appeared here previously in March. The date stone on the left hand cottage says AD1920.

To the left of the photograph is Stalybridge's old Fire Station which also seen in March.

See Google Aerial View of this location.

Update (21st Oct):
Would you believe it? I went past here today and all the ivy has been taken down! That's what happens when you don't post a photo immediately! I'll post a photo of the bald house soon!
