Ruby Tuesday: Red Brick Substation by Clock Tower Close

The houses behind the wall are in Clock Tower Close, part of an estate of new houses built on the site of Slack Mills, home to James North whose firm patented the PVC glove in 1947.

The factory was demolished in 1998. To service the new houses an electricity sub-station was built using the same red brick design but on outside of the wall.

A contribution to Ruby Tuesday.


  1. Great collection of structures and masonry work. Well done for a Ruby Tuesday.

  2. That's some nice looking brickwork.

  3. We don't have much brickwork here in St. Petersburg, so it's nice to see!

  4. These are beautiful. Happy RT2.

    Mine's here.

  5. Beautiful captured!

    Visiting from RT2- hope you can stop by..
