Below is a panoramic picture of a terrace of houses in Wilmslow. The one at right used to be a fustian factory. More information on the others to follow.
As a panorama yes the joins are obvious but there was little room for manouvre when taking this photo; one can't stand far back, it's on a slope, etc.
The red brick at the left end is a modern office block; in the background at the right end is Safeways car park.
