Look what they done to the hole, Ma …

10 May

Now I know you should not judge something before it’s finished but this is not looking good. Regular readers will recall the Hull hole otherwise known as the Beverley Gate ruins or remains or whatever. It had become an uncared for, litter strewn place where youths gathered to do whatever youths do (skate boarding, drinking, smoking, in short all the fun things). The options were to fill it in or re-jig in some way to make it more amenable. A public vote decided on the latter option and we are where we are with this; well it’s about half as big as it used to be, the lining seems to be horrid brownish beige 1970’s concrete tiles that clash with the ancient brickwork, the steps are just ugly, it looks awful. Oh sure there’s a lot of planting behind where I’m standing and the taxi rank has been moved (much to the annoyance of taxi drivers) but I don’t see this as anything other than worse than before. And where are our discontented youths to go now? And who will pick up the litter? Maybe filling it up was the better option … it’s never too late.

    It looks like it was smacked with an ugly stick.
