Old Roose


This is one of the few examples of early Victorian railing and gates to survive intact in the Barrow area. All the rest were used as scrap during the second world war, there are many houses and public buildings where you will find just the telltale half inch of iron sticking out from the stonework. This row is called old Roose and is well hidden from the road and a lot of locals don't know where it is.
