Holes appearing in the High Street

Over what must be more than a year we’ve mentioned the conversion of former offices into flats at the top of the High Street.  There’s not been a lot to be seen until recently, when new windows have been installed in one building, and holes drilled in the front wall.  (We’re not sure what the holes are for – perhaps someone can tell us?)

One interesting thing is that the building is, of course, within the infamous London Road Block.  Presumably the owner doesn’t expect the LRB to be regenerated (ie demolished…) to any great extent in the near future.

  1. flats to the right, with bay win I lived with my mother in the early 1950’s, amI really that old? She was manageress of Eastmans Dyers and Cleaners, and started there in 1948 on the princely sum of £3 a week. After she died I was allowed to stay there until I got married. Memories.

    • Probably not, without permission. But normally a/c – other than window units – doesn’t need large holes through the wall. It’s only cold water circulation plus a few cables that link inside and outside the building.
