The view down New Church Street – smart but a little sterile perhaps. I think more trees would have helped here. The cobble setts set so firmly in cement have lost all their charm and colour in my view.

The welcome return of a little curiosity

Planting on the square to be provided by these guys….beech hedges in concrete pots. There’s loads of them…must have cost a fair packet. They are currently arranged rather haphazardly pending completion of works.

The ‘competed’ section of the square is looking a bit worse for wear in places. These bollards were unsuccessful.

The grassed terrace at the northern end of the square. The terrace of 4 Georgian houses languishes in the background.

Another one of those forgotten streets – with the attractive name Friary Avenue. The housing here is starting to look like a ghetto.
