The last time I was in Scholes it didn't have big tall buildings like that......only row houses with two up and two down. I don't remember much sun either.

What a stunning picture.
Are these awful skyrise flats still occupied?

Nice one Dave, love the colours especially the sky. Looking east you must have been on the car park over Debenhams, or somewhere in that area?

Yes, Jean F, the flats are still occupied. They have just had a refurbishment, which included the new white cladding. This has improved insulation, so they are warmer than before. The interiors have also had a face-lift, and the surrounds have been greatly improved, with secure, gated parking. From the visits I make there, people are happy living there.
