We are rallying!

Nailsworth needs a demographic balance.

Welcome to the house of fun, Mystery Guest!

Well I had a look to see how the M and S building was progressing. It looks a bit domineering already and is quite near to the boundary fence. It also looked as if it was being built with breeze blocks when I thought it was going to be mostly red brick.

Well, looking at this slab like building one has to ask whatever happened to large windows. The windows in this place look more like arrow slots in a castle!

Is that so the old folks can fire their arrows through them at the towns young folk?

It's looking like a very dominant building and not in a good way.

Wonder what happened to the badgers...

Thanks for the update B and your amusing comments,the 'arrow slot' windows maybe small so as to conserve the heat in the winter! I would hope that they are wide enough to jump from in case of a fire though.

I would think that the badgers are probably still on site somewhere. They are very tough animals. I read this week that they have tunnelled under a road near Croydon causing it to subside and to be closed!

Most animals are territorial creatures and as we are continually building houses on their ground we must learn to live with the consequences.

Although I do agree with you as regards the small windows (perhaps they are bigger at the back away from the road??), I do think over all it is not too bad a building. Certainly much better than most of the other buildings surrounding it. It has a varied frontage and I would say fits in quite well with the town generally.

Quotation:

Not too sure about that Bertha. What it does remind me of is St.George's church just opposite there. Both are far too Victorian and not Cotswold enough for me personally.

But maybe the residents will have a great time shooting arrows down onto the traffic jams!

Just think of all the long stay parking spaces we could have had if they hadn't built this..............................

A few updates as it's looking more or less finished.

From half way up the 'W' like the opening photo in this thread.

From the street.

And through the square window.

I think it looks great. I always thought the original site looked an eyesore.

Actually, I think it has certainly enhanced the area. Well done for those concerned. Got my vote.
