I stopped by at Dick Puddlecote’s blog today, for no particular reason, and learned about two places I hadn’t heard of. Exhibition Road, here in London is a long street where pedestrians and motorists are encourgaed towards spontaneous order. Worth a visit with a camera methinks. However, the gem of the article was Poynton which has completely regenerated its stressful traffic congested town square into a new more caring heart for the town.
See how the residents fell in love with it below.
It amazes me how many times word like “kind”, “caring”, and “friendly” are mentioned in relation to a scheme of which Ayn Rand and Margaret Thatcher would both have approved.
