Re: Re: Smithfield Market – what’s the verdict?
On the subject of the braziers, the bases of them are unbelievably tatty, dirty and defaced by vandalism.
I think they’re very attractive from a distance but when you actually walk by them, they look awful like the base of some kind of derelict ESB substation.
On the rare occasions when they are lit, two of them aren’t working and haven’t for the longest time, which really just about sums up the City Council.
Also, I know people have raised issues about the quality of the cobbling on the square but there’s a big patch that has been tarmaced over, which has made it unimaginably worse.
