Thornton Hough - Chimneys

Although mention of Thornton Hough goes back as far as the Domesday Book the village is primarily Victorian, having been largely rebuilt and expanded in the 1880s by the third Lord Leverhulme, of the then Lever Brothers soap company, now the Unilever corporation. The buildings are mostly of mock Tudor design and this is reflected in the wonderful chimneys.

  1. I love the idea of putting so much effort just into decorating chimneys.
