Laura Ashley Facade
The Bridge Street side of the Laura Ashley store in Stockport.
Their store occupies the site of the former Warren Bulkeley Arms on the corner of Warren Street and Bridge Street. The inn was demolished in 1986 but the facade, by James Hunt of Stockport, 1890, was reconstructed on Bridge Street.
Pevsner described it as "Proud terracotta parapet balustrade and cartouches with arms".
