Tim's One Photograph a Day

Diamond House, Newbury. Unusual Building in Craven Road.

Unusual Building in Craven Road.

This rather attractive building in Craven Road, has the name “Diamond House” engraved in the stonework. Two other stones are engraved “JG” on the left, and “1862” on the right.

Listed Grade II, there is little information on the history of this building. It has three storeys and an attic. I have found no indication of what the initials JG stand for. The listing details suggest it was built as a pair of houses, on a corner site.
