Restoration uncovers Victorian splendour - and ends Caledonian Road's long-standing connection with the sex industry. The Scottish Stores in Caledonian Road. Original features preserved include Jacobean-style woodwork, engraved windows and a series of coloured lithographs by artist Cecil Aldin depicting hunting scenes. We knew we had a unique selling point, to go back to the original feel.
About william perrin
Blacked-out windows at The Flying Scotsman. The pub, deed by architects Wylson and Long inwas originally known as the Haunch of Venison. In the s it was renamed The Flying Scotsman. InKeystone Hospitality battled with Islington Council to keep it open for another year to raise cash for the refurbishment.
In the end, Town Hall chiefs granted a one-year lease. The closure of The Flying Scotsman in October marked the end of a long-standing connection between the sex industry and Caledonian Road. Of the strip ts, sex shop and two erotic cinemas located in the Cally 10 years ago, none is left.
There were fears Scottish Stores would be turned into another gastro-pub but it does not sell food. However, hungry drinkers can get a bite to eat in the adjacent The Wine Stores, also owned and run by Keystone.
