1930s building on Holywell Street

About

Taking a steady tour of the town looking at changes.  Road improvements in the town centre continued into the 1930s. Buildings erected in the 1930s do not have the distinctive style of the 1920s and are often overlooked. This walk will enable you to identify most of them.
