Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’
That’s disturbing about the Chamber St. house Graham. No Bob the Builder should be allowed butcher the last original house on a three hundred year old street. This is a brick house, you can’t just bang in concrete lintels and concrete bricks.
The beam was decayed, in part, but there are conservation experts to deal with this kind of thing.
A postcard view down Chamber Street from Weavers Square, with Newmarket in the distance. I hadn’t realized that the Weavers Square block of flats was up for demolition. As you say, the opportunity to replace it with a sensitive scheme that respects the original urban intentions should not be missed this time.
