This Skeptic Aisle

Bradford Council Nick Allen Projects Saltaire Saltaire trees Saltaire Village Society

This Skeptic Aisle by Nick Allen This dredged channel, this barren avenue This ravaged course, this blasted thoroughfare This bleak and concrete way Our shade against the heat of summer Our cover from the sudden storm Arboreal elegance swapped For rough-patched holes in the ground This bleak dyspeptic signage This road to a clean artistic mill All polished stone, flooding light and Hockneyed brilliance   No blossom, no helicopters, no nuts or conkers No more safe haven for butterfly or birdlife What talk now of the enrichment of Bradford's jewel.

[gallery type="rectangular" ids="2247,2249,2255"] Earlier this year I received an email from the University who were interested in using some of my work for their brand new research students area in the School of Education. The School was the very first place I started working at all those years ago (20 years in fact!) and it's where I studied for my Masters degree, so I was, as you can imagine, really keen to be involved and actually re-visit the School and have a nosey around the old building where I used to work.
