have fallen into the habit of looking in on Sidcup at fortnightly intervals but a reader suggested it
would be worthwhile bringing forward my next visit. He said “you couldn’t make it up” but most of the blocks
laid since work started on Hatherley Road on 19th May had been ripped up.
While making my way there I noted that the paved area outside Sidcup & Co. (Photo 1) had at long last been finished off; that section’s only taken five months to complete but Hatherley Road appeared to have gone backwards just as I was advised.
Photo 2 shows the situation last Sunday and those below are how it appears today. Blocks have been piled in untidy heaps and thrown into wheelbarrows.
As this is the 15th picture diary of progress on the Sidcup High Street regeneration it is time an Index was introduced to enable easier location of earler blogs.
