While waiting for the bus home from Wallingford the other day I could not help notice a couple of things happening in the town.
This pile of rubble you see was Wallingford Police station. It was closed and sold off as part of cost saving.
This is what it used to look like back in 2010 and then it was part time. When I was a youngster it was fully manned and had a complement of police that patrolled the Town and outlying villages. I wonder where the government is going with this because it does not seem right to me, we need more police not less
So into Town and this area had been cleared, all I can tell you was there used to be derelict barn over near the red barrier in the distance. I suspect all this will be redeveloped
I'll finish with this. The building used to be the Westminster Bank Or Nat West as it was latterly known. A couple of months ago it closed due to cost cutting and on-line banking (which I do not have or trust) It now leave three Banks in Wallingford and a lot of unhappy customers of Nat West. I wonder how many moved banks over this. I now await to see what will happen to this building.
