We said at the start of the regeneration of The Square that we weren’t going to keep a blow-by-blow record of what was happening. So, we’re having to work from memory here.
We were quite fond of the ‘old’ mall, though it did need a good clean and a fresh coat of paint. However, we’re quite happy with the changed appearance too. It’s certainly a bit more modern and in keeping with current fashion. But there are/were two exceptions: the panels above Jack Wills and those above Trespass. The former reminded us of small wooden pallets – you know, the sort of thing that bulk materials are delivered on. The latter just seemed too fussy, and a poor match with the low-key panels elsewhere. Rather strangely, though, in both cases the panels seem to have disappeared, and only their supporting framework is left. As today’s photo shows.
