Royal London Buildings


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Following last week's "My World" image of fancy Victorian brickwork at Stockport Road in Ashton, here are some more photos taken just a few doors further along the row.

Although part of the same terrace, the design of the building is very different, with a fairly grand stone portico gracing the front door supporting a square bay window above.

The stone plaque between the upstairs windows on the right bears the words "Royal London Buildings".

Looking even closer, it will be seen that the upstairs windows, while appearing to be plain in design, in fact have interesting splayed bricked lintels above them. It's amazing what you notice when you start looking upwards!

  2. I love the details. I can see where some of the detail ideas on older buildings here in Canada came from.
