You really do wonder about the logic of this signage in Waverley Drive. It’s not actually ‘wrong’, just totally unhelpful. (If you were planning to visit to try to work out the logic, sadly you’ve missed your chance – the signs were removed a couple of days ago.)
New hoarding was being installed around the Cambridge Hotel when we took our first photo, below, the other day. (No, we didn’t notice the wood-screw slap bang in the picture! We were holding the camera above our head…)
Probably the view will be very different when we’re next able to see the hotel from the same position.
We guess that the original brick chimneys – undoubtedly the best in the town centre – have been demolished rather than preserved. One day we may show a photograph of them.
NatWest customers who’ve discovered the hard way that the bank in Park Street is closed temporarily might be a little mollified to learn that asbestos really is being removed from the building. Here’s the evidence – at the service area behind the bank. We assume that the open door and open windows are all part of a controlled process.
Our first picture is an extract from the front page of the borough council’s website. Our second is of one of those nice new streetlamps in the High Street at mid-day last Wednesday. It, and all the other streetlamps, were shining brightly in the sun.
When we walked past the former Frankie and Bennie’s restaurant in the Atrium the other evening, the ‘Bar Open’ sign in the window was shining brightly. But we think it was just being tested, for the restaurant – about to become the La’De Kitchen, offering Greek and Italian cuisine – really didn’t look ready for business. We guess it soon will be, though.
We’ve only just discovered that Sharps fitted furniture showroom in Park Street has closed. When did that happen? Was the fact that a new fitted furniture business is coming to the former Bath Store on the A30 partly responsible?
