You are correct. Pavement parking here has been an issue for some time. Yellow lines next?

These bollards have recently been erected in Maxwell Road, going all the way down to the junction with Conway Mews. At this point there is a sudden change in the road surface - I can only surmise that this is where the local authority's responsibility ends and the M.O.D's starts. I wonder if anyone can confirm this?

This is another building in Brompton that seems to have been left unoccupied for several years now - Mansion House in Mansion Row. The area to the left has been sold and fenced off for a probable new build. It would be interesting to know something about the history of this place, I believe it may have been used as some kind of residential home before it was vacated.

Yes it is the church at the bottom of the Delce. Work is progressing on it and I believe is due to end in September.

Let's hope they get it sorted out before too long - there's always the threat of vandalism when properties like this are left unoccupied for an excessive length of time.

Is the Delce Road incident to do with the Church near the Star Hill end?

Sadly, This type of brickwork can easily burst, as in the Delce road Rochester recently.

It's the army chaplains quarter. I think it is currently unoccupied due to the structural problems shown in the photograph.

Yea, when the church was built it the church was a Church AND School and that building was the schoolmaster's house.  Later it was used as a residence for staff at the military families' hospital. These days it is called the Old Vicarage, but I'm not sure it has ever actually served that function in the strictest sense. I think it may have been (or possibly still is) used as the Chaplain's residence.

I had a look through some other threads before I posted, but couldn't find anything. I assume this was built at the same time as the Church?

I have a feeling there is a fair bit about it in one of the other threads, I think maybe the Garrison Church (St. Barabara's) one?

This is a  building I've never seen featured in the Brompton threads. It's next to the Garrison Church in Maxwell road and known as "The Old Vicarage", but is labelled as "Schoolmaster's Quarters" on older maps. I'm wondering what the situation is regarding this structure - I assume it's now a private dwelling, but the scaffolding seems to have become a permanent fixture and I have never seen any signs of occupation.

That's all that's stated - Grade II listed building, main construction periods 1745 to 1745. Wouldn't the construction date be on the deeds?

Hmmm. Has the owner taken the carved date as their evidence or do they have information from deeds?

A little bit of additional information. The Listed Building designation states that the building is dated to 1745 by the owner.

Not just latin, J and I were regarded as the same interchangeable letters well into the end of the eighteenth-century.
