The Lights Of Holloway Road

All this city light around the front entrance to the church, and you would hardly know it was there, from this angle looking north. Modern signage, road and vehicle lighting really glares.

Less obvious in these long summer evenings, but at night, once people are gone, the church sits in a pool of darkness.

I think it would be good to restore the building to our local skyline.

It would improve our night environment. Not that I am saying there is anything wrong with plastic illuminated shop signs, just that there are a lot nicer things to look at right under our nose, which we can't see because they are being drowned out...

With this in mind, I have been looking into restoring the lights which are on the tower. Fingers crossed - it may just be a matter of new bulbs and a man with a cherry picker and a head for heights. I will keep you updated.

Then this handsome grade 2 listed building will take its place once again as a visible presence on our night time high street.

That's the all-night netcafe on Holloway Rd... High-wire insomniacs without home broadband take note... They do, or at least they used to do, an all-night special offer...
