Heh, you’re not starting that one again!

Fantastic aerial view showing the nature of the fake attic storey there, with all but the three bays of the curved end hosting their roofs behind the windows. In the case of the final house, this was the last to be built, probably c. 1815, when presumably there was more money around to go the whole hog.

The lack of uniformity amongst the restored chimneystacks is also unfortunate, particularly when seen from O’Connell Street.

The scale and character of the Westin is mind boggling. If ever there was a development that was patently unsuited to its location, this was it. Shovelled in.
