Damaged trees in Stratford

A row of large riverside trees in the centre of Stratford have been blocked off since the floods in July, and last week a decision was finally made. Here’s how they used to look:

Chopped trees by the Avon

It’s sad – they were a major part of the view, and it’s not like they’re going to grow back 🙁 I guess it was the only way to make them safe, though. What with this and the RST being in bits, Stratford’s looking something of a mess at the moment.
