Stalybridge Saturday: Green House Effect

Another photo from Waterloo Road in central Stalybridge.

Rather unusual to find in the centre of a town is this pair of brick cottages, one of which is totally clad with ivy!

The cottages are directly opposite the bus station and are next to the Old Fire Station, seen here two weeks ago.

A date stone on the left hand cottage reads AS 1920.

  1. Oh! another lovely shot MartinC

  2. A lovely shot of the green-house effect which also works as a good insulator although it eats awayat the stone and woodwork.

  3. I like the ivy very much. Here we try to pull it down as it damages the paint and the stucco...it really sticks. Different kind of ivy, probably. Great photo!

  4. The wise man keeps it within bounds.
    Once it gets to the eaves the damp factor in the wall will increase.
    It attacks the gutters and the rain does not drain off the roof correctly.
    Yes - there are different kinds but they all have the same nasty habits in varying degrees.

  5. I often look at your photos of Stalybridge and Tameside, and really like them. This is another lovely shot of our town!

  6. Nice to see the building is well looked after, i served at Stalybridge fire station for many years, the top two windows was a flat which My wife and I rented during part of my service there, it brings back many memories.
