Hidden In Plain Sight – post 21

This little gem is hidden away in the town centre. Built in 1862, I have no idea by whom and what it’s original purpose was. Aptly named Lion House, I just love the detail in the exterior of the upper floors especially around the windows.

It’s currently home to Age Concern (Age UK) but previous businesses were an Assurance Society and then a small graphic design & publishing company.

Lion House - 4 Russell Street

    The windows are similar to the windows in post 5, the Brough, Nicholson & Hall building. Love your hidden in plain sight series 🙂

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment, I’ve also noticed there are lots of buildings with very similar design features mainly because most important properties built in my town were designed by William Larner & Son Ltd during the later half of the 19th century.
