Drury House, Chester - September 1994
Drury House is located at the southern end of Westminster Road at the junction with Lightfoot Street. It was designed by Chester based architect John Douglas as a public house and built in 1877, however due to objections by the local temperance movement it was never granted a licence. It served as a shop and off-licence until the 1980s when it was sold as a private residence but due to its unusual design the building remained on the market for many years. This photo shows Drury House still boarded up in 1994. See also the same building in 2016 SJ4166 : Road Junction on Lightfoot Street, Chester
