|Incidental Pictures of Romiley (Part 0)|
A journey through time and space with an Aiptek PenCam
featuring pictures left over from the lamp post study
01: Red sky at night
An incredibly red spring sunset sky-at-night over Carlton Avenue.
02: Romiley gets careless drivers
The Welcome To Romiley signs at the western end of the village, opposite the Duke of York pub, exhorts motorists to drive carefully. This sign on the left side of the road has been belted, but good, by some dozy driver! The right-hand support post, in this view, leans toward the camera and the top-right corner of the sign in bent toward the camera relative to the rest of it.
2003/08/18 : Update The sign has been straightened, ready for the next dozy driver.
03: The Stock Dove
This is the colourful Stock Dove sign beside the car park and outdoor drinking area.
04: The building site
The new lamp zone terminates in the west at the site of what used to be the Davies & Metcalfe engineering works, which is now being rebuilt as accommodation for incredibly rich old folks.
05: The Friendship Inn
Heading east along the new lamp zone from the building site, here is the front of the pub seen in several of the pictures above.
06: The Grey Horse.
The next pub along from the Friendship Inn on the south side of Stockport Road.
07: Foundling Terrace (1861)
This antique terrace is a hang-over from Victorian times in the 21st Century.
08: The Stock Dove.
The pub itself looks totally unspecial now that it is no longer painted its distinctive white colour of former years.
