This, folks, is a Heritage Wall. No, I don’t know what makes a heritage wall either, but whatever they are, this is one. Mark and I have been wondering if this means it might enjoy some level of protection, given all the controversy in this little part of town, but I’m not counting on it.
It’s an oddity – on the beer garden side (i.e. the pub side) it has blocked up doors and windows and on the green side, it’s clearly had the rest of it removed save for some white tiles – perhaps it’s what’s left of bomb damage?
But these ‘memorials’ fascinate me. They say who erected them but fail to say what or who they remember.
I’m assuming they’re left over from the churchyard – but maybe not?
So – a bunch of unanswered questions today.
A) What actually is a Heritage Wall – and does that give it any protection whatsoever?
B) What used to be here – Shops? Houses? St Peters?
C) Who do these memorials remember?
Answers on a postcard, please…
