Summer is in full swing and it has brought to mind those warm red-brick Staffordshire evenings before we moved up to Scotland. I have been meaning to update my street archive for the last couple of years… so let’s resume where I last left off in Eccleshall with this side of Stafford Street at the southern end, nearest the roundabout. The other side of the street is recorded here.

No’s 20 and 22 are early 19th century and listed grade 2. They are built in red brick sitting on a stone plinth. It is described further on British Listed Buildings online:

‘2 storeys; 4 sash windows with plain lintels. Each has a canted bay window (with glazing bars) to ground storey and a plain wood pilaster doorcase with cornice hood, 4-panelled door and stone steps up; corbelled, dog-toothed eaves; ornamental tiles.’

Here’s a closer look at both the buildings:

Moving along, there is a slight change in the roofline for No. 18 Stafford Street.

Hinson Parry have gone and I think the new inhabitants are ‘Gentleman Jacks’, barbers.

Here we take a pause in this part of the street with V Service Centre, now The Garage, Eccleshall.
