First Presbyterian Church, Dunedin.
1960s council flats in Heavitree, Exeter...
Early 20th century terraced cottages. Heavitree Road, Exeter...
The Heavitree United Reformed Church in Exeter...
The John Lewis Building (was Debenhams) on the corner of Sidwell Street and New North Road in Exeter...
Dunedin skyscape, on a murky winter day. The large brick building left of centre, with the barrel shaped chimney top, is Speights brewery.
Cardrona Hotel - an old goldfields hotel in Central Otago.
Nice to see some non-UK buildings. More!
Anyway, a repurposed Victorian school in Staines:

The original dedication stone.
Ah, local architecture with real interest....
I think they need to get the congregation to sit more on the right side.
Nah, it's the CofE that's the Tory Party at prayer...

Then they must be a skinny lot
More Central Otago goldfield hotels - The Vulcan, at St Bathans
Dunstan House, at Clyde
The Mountaineer, Queenstown - this building has had the facade preserved. A relation of my wife's managed this hotel, in the early 20th century.
And finally - not a hotel, but modern Central Otago architecture - a house in Clyde
Neo Gothic Romanesque. Late Victorian or even later. A sort of Mish mash.
I wonder what the fine is for a six through a window?
So a very catholic design might one say?
I pass by Epsom College all the time and from the outside you can see it is a magnificent complex, but yesterday I drove in for first time, thanks to this thread. I could easily post a dozen shots, but here's a few:

I'm not in favour of too many Listing Orders; Spelthorne Council doesn't believe in any, well not the ones that get in the way of them making money...
