Oswald House

I think this was a bargain:

Previous auction listing: Oswald House, Rhyddings Street, Oswaldtwistle, Accrington, BB5 3ER

Hopefully it'll be converted into something useful.

Re: Oswald House

Got planning permission for conversion to apartments a few years ago but never implemented. Certainly looks an eyesore!

Does look as if it has potential though ... I like older buildings for some reason ... like me, they are picturesque, in a decrepit kinda way, and have outlived their orignial usefulness

By the by, congratulate me, I have resisted (well almost) the temptation to make a comment about "eysore" and "Oswaldtwistle"

Re: Oswald House

Yes it is. I believe it was the Liberal Club from way back in the day when they were a real political party.

Went to previous auction for 100k, but no takers, dropped to 50k which rightly got some interest and sold for 77k. Big old building will obviously take several times that sum to fix, but better that someone takes it on than it be allowed to go the way of the Conservative Club.
