Weight and Stuff Report – 19 August 2011

Hmm. Down a teeny bit today. I walked to work, but got the bus home, making an impressive[1] total of walking to work four times and walking home three times this week. Which is more than I’ve done in most months over the last few years.

Some more pictures today. This is the Pigrim Street side of the site, in particular the closed off entry to Bells Court:

That’s a narrow lane between a couple of the old buildings that leads to the car park behind, but to many people it’s better known as the Flickrwall, used for chalk graffiti for many years and documented in the Flickr group you can see if you click that link. Here’s one I took nearly two years ago:

All this will presumably disappear at some stage in the redevelopment. As far as I can tell, all that’s happening so far is that some of the buildings to the rear are being removed to allow the car park to be expanded. I don’t think anyone’s ready to spend the serious money a new development would take…

[1] It’s impressed me, anyway.
