Charlotte House.

Charlotte House , Albert Road . circa 2009

Charlotte House , Albert Road. 23rd December 2010

What a sad site to see - such a beautiful old house going up in flames. Luckily it was empty of residents at the time , although the owners were in the property and were rescued safely.
It looks doubtful whether it will be rebuilt to its former glory again.

It will be interesting to see how this turns out... but as you say Nancy it will be sad to lose such a building.

I heard about this - not been by it since - wish I'd snapped it earlier.
