The original Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon

This remarkable pile is the original Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. Built in the 1870s, it burnt down in March 1926.

Some of its structure survives and now forms part of the Swan Theatre, which stands next to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

It's grotesque! If it had survived the fire it might have been listed and we would never have had Elisabeth Whitworth Scott's elegant structure.
