Town Changes

During the past few years there has been a controversial discussion to alter one of the ‘Edwardian villas ‘ in The Avenue, as it was felt by some that the development was out of keeping and too large for the site. However the planners agreed to the change, which is now complete.

The photographs taken by the society in 2015 show the original house and the photo taken this summer shows the house with the new extension. Interestingly, the architect has chosen to keep it to the same proportions as the western wing of the house but used completely different windows and materials to give a distinctive  modern look to the new build.
