The Willesden Herald: Ironwork restoration
I've noticed the terraces off the Willesden High Road have the same mish-mash of improvised front garden fences, an abominable mess. Was the whole country defaced? When you think the ironwork wasn't even used, it's so appalling. I know it is a small thing compared to the general devastation and carnage of the war, but it's not insignificant. By debilitating the street environment might it not even be partly responsible for a pervasive feeling of shabbiness and hopelessness? A bit of googling reveals Scotland was also affected. Come on Boris Johnson, GLA, local borough councils & National Lottery Townscape Heritage fund, it really is past time the ironwork was restored!
