Riverside Inn, Thistle Green

It’s been empty for years but the Riverside Inn could soon get a new lease of life with plans to convert the building into shops and flats. Bulldozers moved in on Tuesday 18 June 2019 to clear the way for the revamp.

The Green Bushes, Stockton. October 2013

A former Stockton pub. The railings and gate are very ornate and the building itself, although not very wide, is quite long and I wonder if it was once a hotel or grand town house? Like a lot of the buildings in the High Street some of those on Yarm Lane also are very ornate, or once were, especially if you look up above the modern shop fronts.
