Brr in the 'Burgh

I just spent a lovely few days in the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh. The weather was great (no rain!), and the architecture was stunning! From the castle to the interesting Scottish Parliament building, it really was a feast for the eyes. Best seen from Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh is a beautiful city. I can still hear the bagpipes playing.

It doesn't all have to be new...

With all the new housing developments being built, and with the glass exterior of The Shard cutting through London's skyline, it's easy to think that all new developments have to be, well, new.  However, on a three acre site in Highbury Park Mount Anvil are retaining Loxford House, a beautiful Victorian Building, converting it into flats and adding mature, landscaped gardens for public use. They are also building 18 new town houses, but hopefully will keep some of the period architecture in their plans.

It's nice to see the charm of the beautiful environs of central London are being kept, and that property development just doesn't mean new. And with the recent announcement from the government to relax planning permission laws it really seems that we'll be improving what we've got. So here's to the new-old-new.
