    What an awful site. I can hear the background Buzzzzzz from here.

    Thought folks would gawp at this one. Probably not as bad as it looks.

    I didn’t add, street view can take a peek up the entrance and see the screen I think.

    That’s a terrible site, one of the worst you have shown so far.

    I’ve noticed some phantom high records being reported by the BBC, but when I search I can’t find them on line.
    The new high record was set for Scotland recently, I think it was for the 2nd or 3rd. I can not find it reported anywhere else tho.

    Something I didn’t mention, a general point. One of the particularly tricky items is tree and shrub planting and growth. In this instance probably a completely new site, sparkery was built and then landscaped, no trees, trees grow changing the environment.
