I woke up this morning quite late after a long night on projects of mine. The day was wonderful, beautiful blue skies and fluffy clouds – just the day to get out and take some great photos. So I got on my bike and went around the local area taking photos of some of the buildings which I know are being re-built, restored or renovated. The photograph below shows Hale Barns Square, near Altrincham in Cheshire. According to a sign on a lamp-post all these shops you can see in this image are due to be demolished for a new “improved” shopping area. According to locals, this is a bad idea and they seem to like it the way it is – personally, I’m undecided.
