Thought I’d send a recent picture of the old doctor’s surgery on Bridge Road, before it’s gone! It’s always surprised me how this building has survived while those around it have come and gone. It even survived having the rest of the adjoining terrace demolished.
Sadly, its time is up, and being considered of little importance, this and the surrounding buildings are now fenced off awaiting demolition.
Shame the developers couldn’t be stretched to a bit of “facadism” (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-50396337)
Also going is… the SoTBC training centre next door (previously the site of Thirlwell photographers, Martins garage, Archon 2000)… https://picturestocktonarchive.com/2013/12/17/martins-showroom-bridge-road-c1985/
No.27 (formerly Bridge Street Motors, Chaplin’s bar, L’Allegria restaurant.) https://picturestocktonarchive.com/2002/07/17/bridge-road-stockton-c1865/
No.33 (Riverside House) won’t be missed 😊
