They have been working on this house for a very long time, and the drain pipe is not straight.
Worthingtons butchers as it became many years ago, closed in 1993 and it became solely a private residence then, the former owners daughter and husband lived there, the husband still does, the rear and upstairs have ALWAYS been used as a private residence. I pass this building 4 or 5 times a day and the one thing that i'm not happy with are the window frames, the upstairs and downstairs are distinctly two different shades of brown, not quite as noticeable on the photo as with the naked eye, and yes Mick the downspout does look like it was erected after the workmen took a lunchtime break next door in the Black Bull Hotel. But,altogether a brilliant job has been done, as anyone who knew the building before restoration will testify.
What a daft place for a downspout - the water will run past (or even under - can't see much of a step) the door when it rains.
You are wrong Mick, the drainpipe is straight but the house is leaning over.
Yes it's slanted ain't it mickey.
you're right Mick....its 'listed'!
P.C. Brilliant Comment !
Windows are a put off .
Nice renovation apart from the windows. Good to see the cobble stones on the drive.
