I spent two nights moored near Nantwich Aqueduct on the Shropshire Union Canal. Yesterday morning I went shopping and took my camera to get some shots of Welsh Row, the main route into town from the aqueduct. I know some of you like old things and hope you enjoy at least some of my images.
Many of the buildings are old, a mix of Victorian, Georgian, Tudor, and more modern styles, sometimes imitating or reflecting the older ones. In 1583, during the reign of Elizabeth I, much of the town was destroyed by fire – more here – and rebuilt in the subsequent three years. Some of the half-timbered, wonky buildings are probably from that time, though some survived the fire.
