Along Chandos Road

along Station Road
Another view of all those fabulous windows at the old Castle Iron Works.  With the opening of the railway in Buckingham in 1850, the Castle Iron Works was built to make agricultural machinery.  It became well know for its steam-powered road vehicles but the firm failed in 1865.  The building later became a corn mill and then a condensed milk factory.  It now belongs to the University of Buckingham.

Interesting perspective photo with a touch of history. The bollards add a lot to the cityscape.
