David, you always take excellent photos and from your vantage point for this one it seems you can also walk on water.
They look a lovely, I bet it will be nice sitting out on the balcony watching the activities going on on the canal.
Its nice to see that they have kept the old hand operated sluice gate winch on the canal side, I wonder if they are restoring the old tug boat and bring that back as well.
Square boxes with square windows! I bet the architect was up all night designing those.
Here was a chance to show some flair, some style, some quality and what have we got? More square boxes!
Mick said "They look a lovely,"
I didn't think you were Italian, Mick?
They look like containers stacked on top of each other
Just short of £300,000 each I believe.
They look like they're built of Lego.
Canal side cell block.
At least they’re are low maintenance with no dangerous cladding .
Hopefully they will last as long as the Lego brand . I wish the new owners every happiness in their new homes .
Angela says - Just short of £300,000 each I believe.
They won't sell at that price. Then the council will buy them and rent them out, to immigrants and they'll pay their rent for them. Like what they did with those expensive stone houses in Church Street, Orrell.
You can see these lovely houses being built on this video
Must definitely need to go to specsavers.They look awful.
What shall we do about the roof?
Let's have a flat one.
Isn't a flat roof prone to leaking?
Yes, but there isn't much rain in this location!
I made a comment earlier but it must have got lost, I commented on those large stone slabs and was wondering if they was left behind from when Winnard's stonemasons was there.
What a fantastic view of the deralict petrol station.
Ive never heard of Winnard's stonemasons Cyril, I was thinking they might have been what the old canal tug boat was sat on
It closed in the 1970s Mick, much as everything else along there did when it all became derelict, it may not have been called Winnard's at that time though that is the only name I can find. according to the information from the website link below they built St James Church Poolstock along with many others. scroll down to Winnard, though the other names may well be of interest as may be the photo showing Springfield Hall in the background. http://springfieldparkmemorial.weebly.com/the-men-who-built-springfield-park.html
