32-56 High Street Eccleshall

56 and 54 High St Eccleshall

Here’s another section along the north side of Eccleshall High Street. I’ve added the descriptions for each of the many listed buildings along this part of the street and added the link to the relevant page of British Listed Buildings online.

It would be interesting to learn a little more about who lived in these buildings, what they did and the changes of use that have happend over the years. I would love to hear from you if you can add a bit more life to this archive!

To see the drawing in full, please visit my website Drawing the Street, or if you live near Eccleshall, why not call in to Gallery at 12 on the High Street where there are some framed limited edition prints on display and available to order.

So to go into each of the buildings in turn on this drawing:
