Reply To: Proposed demolition of a building of Hague
There is a very attractive picture that I am going to scan tomorrow to send to the local newspaper along with a letter and notice of a petition against demolition.
I have fished out and dusted off the old black and white photograph of the church and convent as it was previously. Since then (mid 50s I believe)church authorities pegged on to the face of the building a completely unsympathetic chapel for the nuns of the convent (who now are so few that they live in a bungalow nearby) This, along with the maturation of some trees that were planted, have completely obscured the facade of the building. It is my opinion that the removal of the trees and the tacky chapel is what’s necessary to do justice to the original building.
I’ll try and have a photograph to show you tomorrow Paul. Thanks.
