Thurmaston, Melton Road c.1965

More about this scene


Caption for Thurmaston, Melton Road C1965: The parish church of St Michael sits behind the buildings on the left of the now peaceful main street. Canal Street, Wharf Street, and Mill Lane on the right run back to the river. Left alone, the buildings in Melton Road could have reverted to a village atmosphere, but the Council in its usual insensitive manner authorised the demolition of the cottages on the left, and the erection of an amazingly ugly knitwear factory. As usual, the double- glazing salesmen have paid the street a visit!
