Bus Shelter, Stannington
Bus Shelter, Stannington
Dated 1937, and designed by Laurence Whistler, this Grade II Listed building is constructed of wood on a squared stone plinth with a swept Lakeland slate roof. It is one of a pair presented to the village by Lord Ridley to commemorate the coronation of King George VI and stands alongside what was once the route of the Great North Road. In the Second Edition of Nikolaus Pevsner's, 'The Buildings of England Northumberland' the pair of shelters were described as, “two pretty little bus shelters” and indeed they are.
