hi all..here are a few pics i took last year of the round house which it situated on the corner of vincent st/sheepcote st which is just off broad st...a victorian building which i beleive once housed the horses that worked the nearby canal...in later years it was used as a council workyard...as far as i know this building is not under any threat of demolision which is music to my ears...hope you like the pics of this most unusual building..

A must for my next trip when all my photos are going to be b/w

John

Here are a couple of black & white ones to compare yours to. I think these are about 40 years old.

Excellent picture trail Astoness. Keep it up.
