Round towers


I am always intrigued by this pair of semi-detached houses near the centre of Shipley. They have a most unusual design with round towers and a metal-railed balcony with a design of entwined Yorkshire roses. I'm sure they must have an interesting history but I have not been able to find out anything about them. Sadly they have seen better days and could do with a bit of sprucing up.

  1. You could do with some round rooms. Fewer hiding places for hoomugoos spiedars!

  4. They look lovely from here- I wonder if they have spiral staircases inside?

  5. They are lovely and don't look too bad. Most of the deterioration I can seen is at the roof line.

    Where do you find curved sofas for the round rooms?
