It seems that another field is being turned in to yet another housing estate. There won't be any green spaces left soon. The works machinery has moved in already and work has commenced.
Apparently, sixty eight houses are being shoehorned in to this one field, I don't like their chances of being given a big garden.
This is the field from the top view.
You may remember the above photo from my Come For A Walk With Archie post from June last year. When Archie goes for this particular walk now, he has to turn around and go home the way he came, not quite as exciting.
Ugh! I had the same feeling when I went visiting family in Boston Spa, and saw a building site in the field next to the church. Makes my heart sink!ReplyDelete
When I revisit the little market town in Yorkshire that I spent a few happy childhood years in I barely recognise the 'outskirts'. The fields where I played , having happy carefree days, are now covered over with houses ,which, as you so rightly put it, have been ' shoehorned in'. The little place I lived in near Winchester is also unrecognisable - my old junior school has been knocked down and replaced with houses too.ReplyDelete
The only upside to the bad economy here is that they've quit building so much.ReplyDelete
We are constantly fighting to maintain the greenbelt land in my area. The latest idea is to put houses on the site of a superb organic farm shop and all the 'pick your own fields' around it.... Craziness!ReplyDelete
All of our green space is going by the wayside, and it is terribly sad.❤ReplyDelete
When you think of all the empty properties around and those in a bad state of repair in towns, it's a shame money can't go into those being sorted instead.ReplyDelete
I agree - its such a shame.xReplyDelete
We have lots of spaces left in the west but it is usually filled with sage brush and we do live in a desert climate so if you get green, it needs sprinkling.ReplyDelete
That's really sad, I hate to see all our lovely fields and meadows becoming building sites. xxxReplyDelete
How sad - a dreadful sign of the times. I remember the post last July - no time wasted eh? Dreadful.ReplyDelete
It is heart-wrenching to see the green meadows, delicate woods and ancient hedgerows meet their demise at the hands of a huge bulldozer.ReplyDelete
It is even worse to think that the path you have chosen to enjoy will not be there anymore...
These place we worship will become fond memories in our old age.
So much for progress.
On a lighter note, have a wonderful weekend.
It's so sad the way our beautiful countryside is being eaten up by these new build housing estates.......soon we shall only be left with the images saved on our computers and blogs. xx
I am so sorry to read about this beautiful field being ruined like that. I understand your sadness. So much for progress. What about the balance we all need which is provided by mother nature?ReplyDelete
Thank you all for your comments. I think we all think alike, it's just a shame that the developers don't!ReplyDelete
