Limited Outlook




"L" is for "Limited Outlook" and that's exactly what the occupants of this house can enjoy!

This well-cared-for semi-detached house in on Stockport Road in Ashton, almost at Guide Bridge. Above the doorway is a fanlight window and a semi-circular arch of tapering bricks with a a stone keystone.

There is also a brick single bay window allowing splendid views of, er... the back of a bus shelter!

I'm not sure how long the bus shelter has been here, as I seem to remember the bus stop being closer to the Corporation Arms a few years ago. I don't know whether the occupants had any say in the matter or whether they drew back the curtains one morning and there it was!

Of course, as Stockport Road is a very busy thoroughfare they may have welcomed the shelter as a screen although I must say I would find it somewhat claustrophobic myself.

  1. Unique take for this L week! I didn't even notice the bus shelter at first, but then thought that if I were the owner, I'd have been aghast at it being there. Bad enough there are buses roaring past, but that shelter should be moved.
