Whoever allowed that awful black and white monstrosity on a traditional cottage ?!
This was the lockeepers cottage. I knew the lockeeper, Tom Barrow, who retired to Herefordshire in 1959.
nice photo harry,
I agree with the black and white monstosity.
Good photo Harry..
Just a guess, but was the B/W window to give a better view to the lock keeper? It doesn't look like modern add on.
I think that the window that sticks out is part of the original structure.
It's there so that the lock keeper can see along the canal Have seen these in other parts of the country.
My friend and his wife, used to live in this house for a few years when they first got married. They lived with his mother. The upstairs bay Window is original.
i used to work at the wood yard across the canal in the 60s
