Wanstead weekend photo, CXXXI

Geoff Wilkinson writes on Wanstead Daily Photo: “Remember where the antique shop was in the High Street? Well as you probably know it’s gone, and the building has a ‘for sale’ sign on it. Anyway along the side of the main building I found this delightful shiplap timber shed complete with peeling paint. It looks as if it has some age, I hope when the new owners take over they keep this little beauty…”

  1. agreed. i would hope that what was a workshop is part of the listing and that it is maintained before it becomes a pile of rot.

  2. Nos 6 and 8 High Street are Grade II listed –

    “Late C18/early C19. Pair of cottages at right angles to High Street. Both 2 storeys. No 6 clad in painted weatherboard with low pitch slated roof. No 8 is of brown brick with low pitch pantiled roof. Near-contemporary. One storey flat roofed and weather-boarded extension. Double hung sash windows with glazing bars under segmental brick arches”.

  3. hi richard,
    i think the photo is of the detached workshop (i.e. not an ‘extension’), so is not expressly mentioned in the listing. however, i think anything in the curtilage is covered. although would be better if expressly described.
