Photo-a-Day (Friday, 2nd July, 2021)
These lovely stone cottages will be standing long, long after new builds... ( if they are allowed). Even if they are demolished the stone will last forever. Stone as old as the Earth itself! No wonder they don't build with it anymore. There would be no work for builders...
I stood beside that green door in a queue waiting to get into the chemists during lockdown 1. There were 10 others behind me. I wonder how the new apartments will look in relation to the Doctor's Surgery and these houses ?
You would would have thought Standish parish council would insist on keeping traditional windows in those cottage.
But I suppose there not that bothered when in a few years time they will be turned into takeaways or home made wine bars.
Wouldn’t like to guess how many times I have walked up and down that street.
what kind of windows do you have Mick?
He'll have traditional semi-detached dorma bungalow windows, Ang. Probably plastic and double glazed, along with the associated misted units, condensation and accompanying mildew.
Plastic windows James? In Shangri-La Shevington? What would the Parish Council have to say about that?
Controversial again Mick. Considering you took your first communion at St Maries you don't half give Standish some stick. Incidentally, the Gentleman who you said you were on hand to rescue if he threw himself in the canal and filmed last year, walked past our house again yesterday, looked in fine fettle.
That bossy woman in Cheshire wouldn't allow plastic windows if she was on the Shevvy Council.
She would have the Parish Anti-Chav Squad wagging a finger at him in no time Veronica.
Where as Irene disappeared too I wonder?
DTease, I was just thinking the same thing....where are you Irene ?
Its not just about them being Plastic windows, its about the style most councils wouldn't have allowed windows like them.
I hope she's back soon - we are running out of conversation! Come on Irene ! They even name songs after you ..
Maureen's another who comes and goes then does a double to make up for it! It's like flogging a dead horse on here at the moment! ;o))
Mick, I should imagine those cottages to have had timber sash windows as original fitment. Just like the ones on the photo exept those look to be 'retro' sash style windows.
Are there any joiners left who could make those old fashioned real wood sash windows? I remember them well they were a pain to open and shut especially after being painted!
Were These originaly School cottages.
