Well the new paved pedestrian area around the north side of the Abbey and on the High Street is not looking as empty and desolate as it did when first laid out.
After the installation of two lines of benches by the Abbey we now have two bus shelters going up opposite the Guildhall.
The first was being set in place this morning – Monday, April 28th – with another due to be installed further down towards Starbucks and Bar Ha Ha.
Passers-by are already pointing out that the shelter seems to be offering around four to six seats while – with a bigger canopy – a lot more people could at least stand under a shelter.
While the advertising boards haven’t gone up yet – the structure is at least painted gray to attempt to blend in more with its historical architectural surroundings.
