    Chavs no problem. 'Yummy Mummies' roam our streets in packs pushing all terrain 4x4 baby buggies. Just like when they drive their 'Chelsea Tractors' the rest of the population are supposed to jump out of the way.

    Hardly, only tractors around here in the 80's were John Deere. Don't think they came with child seats.

    i have mixed feelings about architectural fusion.
    i want to like it, but many times i feel that selecting
    one style or the other would improve the aesthetic.
    that reaction is largely to fused building styles,
    not so much to independent site features.
    i hope you relish your surroundings,
    there is much beauty there.

    I can see how you might find our buildings mix of age and style a bit of a rag-bag, l do too. Our town is like this because since Saxon times it has been an important crossing point on the River Medway, hence the Norman Castle. Every new generation added the 'latest style' of building, so here we sit in an amazing, beautiful and in parts downright ugly place. I just love it.

    Love the bottom pic Blondeaverage. The sculpture.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    Sculpture is the map of the river in our town

    This was commissioned for year 2000 celebrations. We live at the end of the navigable part of the Medway, the silver parts are the various streams the river splits into after it runs past the Castle.
    The stained glass is the parkland and sports fields.
    This is a clearer picture, darn street lamp was in the way!
