Can anyone confirm or deny my belief that the Eldon Grove Labourers' Cottages/ Dwellings - whatever the proper name is - was designated as a Listed Building? If so, why are we just bemoaning its passing instead of reminding the Corpy and getting them to chase up the owner? He's presumably playing the usual game of lying low and hoping it will be destroyed beyond repair...
    It's proper name is Eldon Grove and according to a couple of earlier posts, all 3 blocks, the surrounding railings and lamps are indeed listed. However, certain circumstances can render them to be de-listed and demolished.

    So, has this actually happened already - or is there a developer standing by and living in hope?

    Went back inside Eldon Grove again yesterday and was surprised to find that the top flats have an internal staricase up to another level.

    Cheers Tony..

    The council are well aware of the gate situation, it looks to me like they don't give a toss about Eldon Grove..
    makes you wonder, doesn't it ?... let everybody loose in the place knocking it to pieces stealing what they want..

    what then ?... an easy excuse to demolish..?

    Only a few were completed Steve and it seems the developer had problems letting them to release some more funds for the rest as the tenants would have been living on a building site for quite some time. It's a shame really as it looks like he had a good go.

    Eldon Grove in 2003 taken by my friend Mike Murphy.

    Note the tinned up flats on the top floor which were renovated.

    Yes, those skylights never existed in the original building and stairs were put in the renovated flats to take you up into the roof space. A good idea and a pity these didn't work out.

    A photgraph by A.S. Clayton from when they were lived in.

    Notice the Liver Bird atop the cast iron lamp standard.

    I thought it was a Hillman Imp 15 minutes ago and searched and found the same photo.

    I dont think it is a Hillman Imp in the Eldon Grove photo..
    the window, to me..is more upright and not angled..
    and it looks a taller car...higher off the ground...to me.
