Medow View




Meadow view is a new housing estate built in our village. About 18 months ago the place was just a field now it is almost finished. I took a tour around to see how the field had changed.






This is what the place looks like now






The developers sign is still up advertising houses for sale
 So this is the road in it's called Agatha Christie Way named after the Author who once live in Winterbrook which was in the Parish of Cholsey before it was purloined by Wallingford. She is buried in the village Churchyard




The only green bit on the estate they cannot build on because they found Roman Farmhouse here





This road turns right  from the entrance road





If you go left this is the view you get
 Keep going around and you walk along this long straight part




It finishes here along a road called Ashfield Way, just beyond that van is another field I have no doubt that developers would like to get their hands on. I night add the road ends there as well. This part of the estate was built on wasteland an the end of another road






I was stood here when I took the past photo the junction of Agatha Christie Way




Which is where I went to get a photo of the last house being built, Might add it has the biggest garden 
I walked back out and took this photo of a  seating area in the green space though I really do not know the purpose of the rocks

  1. Those rocks look odd there. A lot of new housing in your village.

    1. Yes they do look odd, I tought they might fix plaques to them telling you about the Romans in the area

  2. A mini stone henge feature? Remind you of the wilderness that were once there? The thing I don't get with estates is they build all the houses the same. Especially over here - I'm not sure that's a thing that looks so good over time.

  4. It's interesting to see neighborhoods in other countries. I noticed how close together the houses are. New construction is the same way where I live. Firemen don't like that because fires can easily spread from house to house and there isn't room to get their equipment between the structures.

    1. Difference is ours are built from bricks not wood like in the US. Fires are problem if you live in a semi

  10. I like the brick. Here they are putting up so much vinyl siding and it looks cheap.

  11. The brick paved roads are attractive, as well as the houses. There is a lot of development where I live and I'm sad to see all the open space dwindle away.

  12. Soldiers on parade is what I think when I see that. The same five designs over and over again.
