Shopfront

Urban regeneration

A derelict and boarded-up shopfront on Hawthorne Avenue (Chalk Lane) with broken windows in good light just before the drizzle came. Hawthorn Avenue is an old alignment, known originally as Chalk Lane which provided a link from the hamlet of Dairycoates (Hessle Road) to the Anlaby Road. In 1875 a ‘Hotel’ was built for Mr Parrott.

Willerby Low Road

Album sleeve number 23

There isn’t a corresponding ‘High Road’ so we can’t sing the song, but there is a ‘Great Gutter Lane’ nearby which is also a great name, alas the actual lane is visually as dull as ditch water. ‘Willerby Low Road’ runs between Willerby and Cottingham…. And, as of typing, Willerby has apparently been a community for 1100 years.

The Wall

Three ex-holes

But what were the holes for, what did they used to be, were they (small) windows, or ventilation conduits, or something I am currently unable to imagine? And why paint them over in such a bright colour, and why not make the rest of the wall match, are they going to leave it like that forever in the hope that somehow they will get dirtier faster than the surrounding wall, or do they just not care? I obviously need to stop obsessing over such matters, it is not my concern and I will only make myself ill.

The Humber

The Humber Bridge

The Humber estuary looking west on a deceptively sunny Sunday afternoon. The Humber is formed at Trent Falls, Faxfleet, by the confluence of the tidal rivers Ouse and Trent. From here to the North Sea, it forms part of the boundary between the East Riding of Yorkshire on the north bank and North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire on the south bank. It is generally brown in colour, and a tall man on the telly (Graham Boanas) once walked across it, he had also done so previously whilst not on the television.

Kingston House

An unviable eye-sore apparently

Designed by ‘modernist’ London-based architects Fry Drew and Partners, the high-rise Kingston House office complex is a long, low block with a (13 storey) tower perpendicular to the street providing a vertical accent. Opened in 1967 it was meant to be the first part of an even bigger development straddling Hull’s Bond Street. Original plans for the area show a pedestrian footbridge across Bond Street providing a link to a new shopping centre, a seven-storey hotel, a conference centre and a multi- storey car park. It has a prominent staircase.
