Been down to HQ today and for those who haven't seen The Grange managed to swipe the negative. Shows back of property, summer house and rose arch. Obviously a winter scene (snow on ice on pool) Presume photo date about early 60's. Believe it was part of the Towers gardens originally, to the right, which is where the water supply (land drains?) fed the pool.

Thats a good old pic, the property is half the size again (further developed) since that was taken. :)

The application for the Grange has been withdrawn. Shame.

I feel one needs balance in life. A bit of old is a good thing in keeping the character of a place alive.
For instance, the new Kingfisher decor is fine and modern but there is a sense that after a few years it will look shabby and outdated. Compare that with a timber beamed 'duck as you enter' old English Inn with a roaring fire and brasses, etc., I know which I would prefer.
There is a sense of permenance with older buildings, they are our link to the past and many young folk like the architecture of older houses when compared to square ticky tacky boxes we have today.

I think I'd be a NIMBY if something I considered monstrouse was going to be constructed nearby. If it's a case of I was here first then perhaps they have a right to be a NIMBY!

I have far too much flactulance to be carbon neutral ;)

It appears the application has been withdrawn once again.
