T. & E. R 1847


It is amazing what you see when you look up.

I've walked down Hamnett Street so many times but only recently did I notice this plaque.

I thought of posting this alone and asking if anyone knew where it was and who on earth were T & E.R, but decided it would be far too difficult a question.


Today the building is home to the Abbey.

I guess it was a factory!
Great detail!

Yes. I am still finding plaques with dates, or sentences. But most of buildings in my own town are 'new' -- 1847 is rather an old date.

Always look around - a good rule for any photographer. You have once again shown us why.

I often see plaques like these and wonder what the history of them is. I think there is a book in these.

It is always fun to discover something new from a place we have passed a thousand times. Great photo of a lovely old building.

Its amazing how we don't see these details until we look up. I do it all the time now to see what I can spot. People must think I've got a screw loose!

What is now the building was once the UCP cafe closing in the 70s and as far as Iam aware was that business for a great number of years. UCP standing for United Cow Products.
