Just got back to sunny Somerset from a flying visit to SE1/SE17. I walked back to Waterloo Station
via El Vergel
in Lant St which took me to Webber St. at the junction with Trinity St. The funeral directors buildings have gone and the site is completely flattened back to the railway. The old file storage building opposite Cable and Wireless is now a 6 storey apartment block. The old garden center (closed for ages I know) is now 'Penthouse apartment for sale - stunning city views'.
Amazing! How things change. Maybe the E&C regeneration isn't going to take 15 years but 15 minutes.
