Granville Liberal Club, Shrewsbury

Now that is what I call a Liberal Club.

You can find it in Shrewsbury at 4 Belmont - the town's most fashionable street in Georgian days. Note too the way that the 18th-century brick frontage was applied to a Tudor timbered building. A lot of apparently Georgian buildings are like that. You can read more about this one on the British Listed Buildings site.

My Shrewsbury town trail booklet also points out that "an extra storey [was] gained by precariously laying bricks on the main rafter of the end gable".

Sadly the building is no longer used as a Liberal club.
