It's a little contrived this week, but who cares! I spotted these 'X''s in January when I was taking photographs for my occasional series on Changing Chippenham and have been saving it up for today ever since. These grace the new Peel Court apartments which are being built across the road from the Eco Homes complete with green walls which featured in the letter G (also the last Changing Chippenham post).
The former cattle market in the centre of Chippenham by the railway station is undergoing a great deal of change. The new county History & Records Centre has moved there from Trowbridge (a future Changing Chippenham article) and a number of housing developments are taking shape. Peel Court has been named after Sir Robert Peel, who was MP for Chippenham in 1812 when it was a Rotten Borough, before he went on to greater things such as being Prime Minister (twice) and forming the Metropolitan Police force. I don't know what he'd make of the apartments graced by his name - for example the pictured 'balconies' don't seem to have much form or function. I'm sure each 'X' forms a warning to residents as in 'Don't go there'. What do you think?
