NOTE: The photographs have all been numbered, so they can be linked to my map showing our walk. Enjoy.
22. The Mailbox has clearly not been a success retail wise. It has a number of 'levels', all lined with retail units, most empty, full of large posters telling of plans to give The Mailbox a new look for 2015. In truth, it is little more than a long walk-through, housing BBC offices and a mini-supermarket at the canal end, plus a few non-descript shops (or were they beauty parlours? I can't remember).
26. And this where I was leading Susan and Curtis. To the National Trust Back-to-backs on Hurst Street. Unfortunately, it was closed (they open Tuesday–Sunday), so it was all a bit disappointing. Susan and I had been at the opening a few years ago, when we used to publish Local History Magazine and we ran its opening as our cover story.
