Another Chorlton coal hole........ now that’s a zippy title

So back by popular demand, here is another in the series of coal hole covers.

A coal hole near you
Once every house and shop had one and now they are a disappearing feature of our streets.

I first wrote about them yesterday *, and Andy found another and sent it over adding “this turned out to be an uninteresting coal-hole. I noticed there were 3 or 4 similar in adjacent houses. I felt a bit nervy taking it......but what the heck”.

Now I have to disagree I think all coal holes are fascinating, but then I don’t get out that much.

So the challenge is, bring on the others Andy and let’s have a Chorlton register of coal holes.... all welcome to contribute.
