More cutting back along the towpath
It was a foggy day in October when taking my usual walk to work that I was struck by the cutting back of the trees and bushes along the towpath opposite Burnell Avenue. There had been cutbacks along there before but not to this extent. The Border Stone stan...

Back to Richmond Chase
I get drawn back to Richmond Chase every few weeks to check on progress and while there is usually little or no change between visits occasionally the work moves on and some more of the development is revealed. On this occasion the next phase of town houses...
