I totally agree but the problem is that whoever is in charge keep saying that in the future it will be fixed after some works have been done.. Result is that it is a constant building site and no estathic solution is made.
This rather amused me on my walk through the lovely Tabard St this morning. Not sure Maggie Hambling needs to waste her time and prestige given the creative types watching over the space. There's a wonderful degree of tension in that arrangement.
Amazing, the blokes who placed those covers back after the most recent work on the drainage didn't work out the correct sequence. Don't let them near a jigsaw puzzle.
But, I think you're on to something. Break up more of the brick pavement features and get a dim-witted contractor to piece them back together in a random way. Far more texturally interesting than what is there at the moment.
Huge tree came down here today. :-(
Looks terribly empty on Tabard St now.
Hope the council replace the railings (the same not some cheap alternative) and replant a tree quickly.
Not that I will see it in its glory.
I expect that big ol' tree had been just a sapling during Dickens day.
Surely it's down to the church to replace it's railings?
Shame about the tree but at least no-one was hurt. It is pretty lucky given the size of the area it's covering in the pics.
Yes, @Tolstoy, that's exactly what I was thinking! Right now the area looks absolutely horrible. It makes no sense that this prominent part of the city should not have a finish at least equally as nice as the little plaza on GDS by Roebuck Pub.
