About

I catalogue planning applications that threaten historic buildings or streets in Yorkshire. If an application for demolition is submitted, I will post it here.

I care a great deal about historic buildings and the landscape that they are integral to in Yorkshire.

The dominance of the car, the industrialised mass production of buildings and the globalisation of style mean that the type of architecture and urbanism we once had will never be replaced.

So no, it is not conservative (with a small c) to want to protect historic buildings. On the contrary it is anti-globalist, anti-materialist, and dare I say it, anti-capitalist.

    Hello,
    Hello,
    I am working with the University of Huddersfield and Kirklees Local TV to produce a short video provisionally entitled Huddersfield’s NHS: the Caribbean Connection in readiness for Black History Month (Oct. 2020).
    As health workers recruited from overseas including people from the Caribbean worked at St Lukes Hospital during the 1960s-mid 80s, it would be excellent to include a few edited still images of how the hospital used to look. Would it be possible to access selected images from your website for use in this educational film made for a private screening? Would any charges be involved please? I wish to avoid any copyright problems.
    Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.
