Dinham Victoriana

Morriss and Hoverd* cite this house on the corner of Castle Square and Dinham as an example of the sort of Victorian excess Ludlovians should be grateful to have mostly avoided.

I admit that it’s somewhat eclectic and even florid, but it’s not as untypical of Shropshire as they suggest, and I quite like it. But then we lived for several years in a just-after-Edwardian building in the Home Counties that also had its pretentions.
