Ellesmere (continued)

Yesterday I showed you some photos of the canal as we walked from the Whittington direction into Ellesmere, along the tow path.

I was fascinated by this seat and shelter - a little difficult to show you the detail in rapidly failing light. The entire interior is covered in ceramic tiles with lovely relief impressions/illustrations, with plaques giving details of historical events. I really should have noted down some of the details for you.

And then on to this wonderful old building on the quayside  (shots below carefully composed with new Tesco store to our right, so as not to spoil the view!)

I wonder whether our modern industrial and commercial buildings will seem as atmospheric and attractive in one hundred years - or if any of them will have survived!
