fancy terraced houses but with high walls soul-less

Right-on, peterp. At first glance i thought they were wonderful architecture especially at the bleachworks, but at second glance they do look at bit like a prison. Solitary confinement, anyone?

Hiya Fred

I agree with you.. would not dare not to lol... all these modern buildings are clones of each other and you could be just about anywhere, unless someone told you.
But the Bleachworks was not exactly pretty , was it?

Better than building on a greenfield site.. Just a thought.
My cousin lived opposite here.

Merry Christmas (again!)

I think they are OK the wall is tall enough to give you some privacy but at the lake end it slopes down so you can chat to the neighbours if you want.

And theres the section that you can meet up on that sticks out into the lake.

Think you'll find that these are not flats individual homes? three story ones.
