A View from Above!
Photographs from the Cherry Picker
In April 2017 we hired a “cherry picker” in order to get a closer inspection of the gap site at No. 24. With Jon Dallas from Dallas Pierce Quinetro, the designers for the development of the site, we were able to go in excess of 12m (although it felt much higher!!). From this position we were able to get a good view of the condition of the gap site and an opportunity to assist Jon in calculating the height for the proposed viewing platform.
As an added bonus I got some great photos of the High Street and the rooftops of the surrounding area, a view which we don’t often get to see. These fantastic views really highlighted to me the diversity of the historic buildings in this area of the town and how they have changed and adapted over the years. The photos above are a selection taken on the day.
